An ex-con trying to go straight is framed for a million dollar armored car robbery and must go to Mexico in order to unmask the real culprits.
The 1.2 million dollars stolen from the bank would be the equivalent of almost 10.75 million dollars in 2015.
What's waiting for you, Harris? The chair, the gas chamber, or just a rope?
As Joe (John Payne) is walking away from the confrontation with Harris (Jack Elam) in the alley outside the Tijuana dice parlor, the shadow of the camera can be clearly seen on Joe.
Opening credits prologue: In the police annals of Kansas City are written lurid chapters concerning the exploits of criminals apprehended and brought to punishment.
But it is the purpose of this picture to expose the amazing operations of a man who conceived and executed a "perfect crime", the true solution of which is NOT entered in ANY case history, and could well be entitled "Kansas City Confidential".
