Prosecutor Edmond O’Brien leads a government probe into a crime syndicate headed by sinister Ed Begley, but he’s hamstrung by pervasive political corruption. Crusading reporter William Holden agrees to assist – while he and O’Brien vie for the attention of a loyal Alexis Smith. The hard-edged script (based on an unpublished novel by Horace McCoy) is a real-life lift from the Kefauver Committee’s exposé of organized crime on the national level. Bunker Hill, Angel’s Flight and Olympic Auditorium all accentuate the period realism. Co-starring Tom Tully, Ted de Corsia and Ray Teal.
