| One Hour to Break the Mob
This "Ripped from the headlines" Warner Brother B movie is written and directed telegraphically and seems to be as much a tract on police procedures as a story. John Litel is the crusading attorney, appointed by the governor to take on the big racketeers; Dick Purcell is the police detective who's more brawn than brains.

The actual course of the story advances more by means of newspaper headlines flashed on the screen. Yet, given the constraints of telling the story in an hour, director William Clemens does a very competent job with the talented cast he's been handed. The reality of the rackets at the time lends an immediacy to the proceedings that lifts this one out of the ordinary.
