Dumb script, cheap sets, black-and-white, second bananas. They all add up to the question: why did Columbia bother with this project at all? Especially in 3-D! Edmond O'Brien is a gangster whose criminal urge is removed surgically, a groundbreaking process that also wipes clean his memory. His hoodlum pals don't believe it, as well they shouldn't, and systematically beat the tar out of him for his forgotten secrets. It's all good for an unintended laugh, and in fact, this could have made a first rate comedy if anybody had realized how ridiculous it was. The cast do what they can under the circumstances, but probably wished they could forget the whole thing.
