I haven't seen this Flick ! I keep asking TCM to show it. It is interesting in that the main character ,John Saxon, was a member of the Amboy Dukes, a Brooklyn street gang in an eponymous bestselling book of the post war J/D era. The Amboy Dukes was filmed as "City Across the River" - it was Tony Curtis's first film appearance. It was a passable, somewhat tepid version of the famous novel. This one, "Cry Tough" is a common book on the collector's vintage PB market, but this film has never been on VHS, LD, much less DVD. A reviewer above states he saw it on TCM. I've requested it from their library, to no avail. A rarely seen film. Lets get it out on DVD, it can't be worse than a lot of the junk available ! It may be a "Film Noir" in style, "City Across the River" is classified thus.
