Trivia

There is actually a Desire Street in New Orleans and was when the movie was shot. However, in spite of the tagline and the expansive use of locations in the movie, none of them come close to Desire Street and certainly not at its "foot". See more »

Waterfront Drama
14 June 2020 | by davidridgewaySee all my reviews

This waterfront drams is set in the French Quarter and on the docks of New Orleans.

The film has everything for a low budget film that is worth watching.

The viewer is in the action from the opening sequence. Freight is being stolen from the docks and there several suspects. We're not kept in the dark over who dunnit. Instead, we watch as a crime network is destroyed.

An especially bright spot is the beautiful Beverly Garland who performs very well Beside her, other stars and supporting actots tell an engrossing story with the help of tight writing, editing and direction.

A downside is the camerawork. Though sufficient, there are many ill advised angles as if the photographer were stretching for an arty, noir look but failed.

Otherwise this is a fine movie. Suspenseful though we know the guilty party ... that's hard to do but NEW ORLEANS CONFIDENTIAL does it and then some in captivating style.
