A very enjoyable, mostly fast-paced film noir written & directed by Felix Feist, who also brought you This Woman Is Dangerous. FF doesn't muck around. The story of a murderous armed robber on the lam cracks along, and is full of snappy lines from all the characters - especially Lawrence Tierney, who clearly revels in his nastiness. Story gets a bit bogged down in a holiday house, and it's full of implausibilities, but it's also packed with a great supporting cast, who give it all they've got - even if what they've got tends to the fairly dumb at times..but hey, this is cheap and cheerful entertainment. Even Tierney's unremitting (and enjoyable) meanness is alleviated by the lively tone of the piece. Tierney by the way is the guy who plays Elaine's implacable dad in a classic episode of Seinfeld. However, his performances in the title roles of Dillinger and Born To Kill (both 1947) are chilling.
