The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

This really isnt a film noir. The dialog is way too pithy for that genre. But it IS a crime drama. Rather light fare. Not a bad movie considering the low budget Added bonus: it features Hillary Brooke, who I remember from Abbot & Costello's TV show.
Oddly, she only worked until 1960 an then Lord only knows what she did for the next 40 years before she died.
