| gambling story with a social conscience
A very good part for Victor Mature as an associate in a gambling operation run by William Bendix, who finds out, when he's about to be deported, that he isn't a US citizen, even though he fought in WW2. When he's banned to Ellis Island for a brief time, he looks lost amid the newly arrived immigrants. His romance with Terry Moore, a young looking idealist who helps recent immigrants, doesn't have much heat, though it leads to a great scene with the two of them driving along a dark road in New Jersey on the way to one of Bendix's out of the way gambling houses in the Jersey woods. The closing scene on a dark corner, with Bendix and his men and Mature is text book noir. To its detriment, the film's two distinct parts don't unite very well into a cohesive whole.
