Hollywood’s toughest mug returns! The ominous Lawrence Tierney is perfectly cast as an insubordinate cop who gets framed off the force and goes undercover to expose corruption and murder in the meat-packing industry.  Comely support is rendered by the beautiful Priscilla Lane (who retired from the screen after this film—was it Larry?). This early Richard Fleischer RKO programmer boasts a pace that exceeds the speed limit! The screenplay by Fred Niblo Jr. and Harry Essex was adapted from an original story co-written by, yes, that Robert Altman!

CAST:  Lawrence Tierney (Mike Carter), Priscilla Lane (Doris Brewster), Phillip Reed (Freddie Dysen), June Clayworth (Connie Fenton), Elisabeth Risdon (Gene Dysen), Steve Brodie (Fenton), Frank Fenton (Lt. Borden)

FORMAT: 35mm
