Better Than Expected, Thanks To Script And Cast
Surprisingly good programmer from Republic. Sly old Arthur (Collins) and two confederates steal expensive necklace from wealthy old lady, after which Arthur double-crosses the two, and turns into respectable philanthropist in little town of Hilltop. Meanwhile, Arthur has sent ahead the lovely Hannah (Gray) to check out the law in Hilltop. There she apparently strikes up a romance with City Attorney Browning (Bridges). Surprisingly, hero Browning appears no match for the wily unscrupulous Arthur. Needless to say, complications ensue.

Good script, with interesting characters, noirish atmosphere, and several minor twists. The statuesque Lorna Gray really registers as a treacherous spider woman, while a restrained Lloyd Bridges shows grit as the struggling young attorney. And for fans of Parry Mason, versatile old Ray Collins shows he's not only a sly cop, but an even slyer criminal mastermind. Add a solid supporting cast, and you've got a result that surpasses its lower-end budget. But, please, don't hire the high school horn trio anytime soon
