B-Movie Master Lederman and Another Violent Finale
27 September 2014 | by LeonLouisRicciSee all my reviews

Ultra-Short but Long on Entertainment, this is Another Quickie from Director Lederman that Delivers a Sombre, Violent Story with a Shootout at the End that is just Bullet Crazy and Anticipated a Style that would Not Become Prevalent Until the Late Sixties and Continue to this Day.

Howard Da Silva is a Gangster that is a Psycho, but Loves His Bullet Scarred Pal that is On Life Support, Kept Alive by County Doctor Regis Toomey. Except for a Bit of Comedy Relief from a Pill Popping Goon, this is a Downbeat and Edgy B-Movie that is Exceptional.

The Climax is a Frenzied Free for All that Ends in a Blaze of Glory. Chalk Another One Up for the Prolific Director that Made Close to 300 Movies from the Early Days of Hollywood Silents and Ended with a Stint in TV. An Unknown Talent that Seemed to have an Unlimited Supply of Energy. The Same could be Said about Most of His Movies.
