In The Maltese Falcon (1941) Sam Spade refers to Wilmer as a 'gunsel'. Trivia notes include the following: "The Yiddish term "gunsel"--literally, "little goose"--may indeed be a vulgarism for homosexual (the word "faigle", or "little bird", is usually used in that respect), but it's more commonly an "underground" term that refers to a person who is either a "fall guy" or a "stool pigeon"." In the case of Wilmer it is appropriate; in this film, in the trailer, 'gunsel' is used as if it meant gunslinger. See more »

I watch this movie every two years. It's a great classic grade B thriller, perhaps the greatest of the 50's; and the best picture shot by Edward L Cahn. The director usually gives us sleepy flicks, always built on the same frame, except his first ones, the 30's ones, as "Law and order". He lost his soul during the 50's and early 60's, till his death.
A little masterpiece. Mamie Van Doren, Lee Van Cleef contribute much for it.
A fast paced and pretty shot little thriller. If you are a caper movie lover as I am, DON'T MISS IT.
I would put it on the same scale as "Plunder Road".
