Police Lieut. Candella, longtime friend of the Rome family, walks a tightrope in the case of cop-killer Martin Rome.
Veteran film noir-writer Ben Hecht worked on the film's script but is not credited.
He's out there somewhere. In an alley, on a roof, looking for a way out. He's not asleep.
Midway through the film, while Rome is knifing Niles to death, the latter manages to pull a pistol from his desk drawer, but is only able to fire 1 shot through the ceiling; moments later we see Niles' secretary, who was eavesdropping just outside the door, is seen dropping dead, apparently from that bullet.
