In San Francisco, two police inspectors are on the case when a rogue taxi driver, with the help of a rogue porter, manages to steal the suitcase of an antiques collector before running down a cop, whose dying gesture is to shoot the cabbie dead. The inspectors discover that a statuette in the suitcase contains heroin. Meanwhile, a psychopathic gangster, his malignant mentor and their dipsomaniac driver have the job of picking up the other heroin shipments, hidden in the luggage of unsuspecting travelers. All goes well until they attempt to retrieve the heroin stuffed in a Japanese doll. A little girl and her lovely young mother have the doll, but when the crooks take possession of it, they find that the heroin has mysteriously vanished. Written by
Several locations given in the film are indeed the actual locations used for those scenes in San Francisco. This is unusual, since most addresses given by characters in films are changed to fictitious ones. See more »
In the scene where the passengers are disembarking the ship, Staples gives Dancer the address of the couple as "9020 Jackson." Dancer then relays it to his driver, McLain, as "2090 Jackson." McLain then drives to the correct house on 2090 Jackson Street, which was then being used as the headquarters of the California Historical Society. See more »
[Contemplating not murdering Bradshaw and her daughter]
Are you that wise? I hope so for the sake of you both.
Yes, I'll do whatever you say.
I'm personally very pleased with your decision because in my profession there's one thing i dislike and that's hearing someone's last words.
[Knowingly to Dancer]
You know, famous last words.

Good crime drama with interesting settings and some good action scenes.The movie really showcases San Francisco. Sutro Baths ( now sadly lost in a fire) is the setting for a some excellent scenes. You will also see the Opera House, the Ferry Building, some freeways being built, and other interesting sights. If you want to see how San Francisco looked in 1958 and see some pretty good action and some pretty mean bad guys you will enjoy this one.
