| a '50's Gangster movie with all the low-budget trimmings
Victor McLaglen has a ball as Big Tim Channing in this forgotten, yet enjoyable, 1950's gangster movie. With all the stand-by's (Frank Ferguson as crusading D.A., Paul Maxey as crooked lawyer, Anthony Caruso as a two-bit thug), this "B" actioner delivers what you would expect, and a bit more. It probably was intended to elevate the career of its lead, John Baer. As such pretty boys go, he's not too bad, but I never heard of him again. Still, it's a good way to kill an hour and change.
