| A decent plot but sub-par otherwise
This is a lower grade film – what people refer to as a poverty row production. It has a second tier of actors, none of whom perform very well. The direction is spotty in a very poor quality film. The only thing going for the film was its plot. It's just enough to keep one's interest. The film has some intrigue and good action in a couple of places. This is crime drama that could make a very good remake with a better cast, better direction and better production quality.

The lead actor in "Docks of San Francisco" is Jason Robards Sr. He had a long career in films and TV, though he never reached the level of success of his famous son, Jason Robards, Jr. The lead actress in this is Mary Nolan who had begun acting under her real name, Mary Robertson. She had a scandalous relationship early in her career, and a wild life with drugs and an abusive relationship – all of which helped her quick demise on stage and screen. She died in obscurity at age 42 from cardiac arrest.
