I'm surprised that it is not on video anywhere,but Frank Sinatra's performance as a hard boiled NYPD detective investigating the brutal murder of a innocent man is something to see it is entirely. Due to its strong adult content and language since it was the only Sinatra film that had a "X" rating during its day(strictly for mature audiences) which was back then during the new standardized CARA system that was inplaced back in the late 1960's. As well as the Chairman Of The Board's leading role as he goes into the sleazy background of New York's grit, you have also strong lead performances from Norman Fell,Jack Klugman and others makes it worth watching until the shocking ending.
Can it on cable if it comes on.
