Quotes

Judge Bruce Mallory Sullivan: I was just thinking of the beauty and charm of life here on West Madison.
Wart: Yeah, you'll get used to it Judge, when you've been here as long as we have.
Judge Bruce Mallory Sullivan: Some place to bring up a boy. Deadbeats hanging round every corner. Hopheads, begging, borrowing, stealing to buy a few cc's of delirium.

Top-flight cast in a great sequel to "Knock On any Door" (1949)
4 April 1999 | by See all my reviews

In this sequel to "Knock On Any Door" (1949) we find Nick Romano's illegitimate son being raised by his mother and a band of well intentioned, but flawed residents of a tennement slum. Winters as his drug addicted mother, and Montalban as her pusher are stand-out performances. It is a gripping scene, when young Nick walks in on his mother and her pusher and catches them "in the act.." Seldom appears on TV, but well worth catching.
