Effective noir flick

For once Claude Akins doesn't play here a gangster but a cop, ex Buddy of Stu in the OSS during the war. He asks the help of his friend for an investigation after the murder of a mobster, in which a girl of his acquaintance is involved. But everything gets awry for Akins when the henchmen of a gangster frame him in a drunken driver set-up. So that they can put him under control...

Well no great surprise here, everything is predictable but always this atmosphere that, I am sure, we'll have all along the series.

A crime flick more than a drama for sure.

Directed by George Waggner, one more time.
