| Efficient film noir
That's the second time I watch a crime film with William Talman in a role of a criminal mastermind planning an armored truck robbery. Remember him in Richard Fleischer's ARMORED CAR ROBBERY, where he was excellent, a feature made for RKO pictures, and produced several years earlier. In this Republic Pictures flick, Dane Clark is also very convincing as an ex con framed by the same Talman.; a most underrated actor with a face looking like Joseph Cotten, the perfect face for a bad guy. He was also excellent in John H Auer's THE CITY THAT NEVER SLEEPS, also for Republic Pictures. Actually, here it is not exactly the question of an armored truck heist, but a security complex, a warehouse facility where big money is brought to and from by the armored trucks, a kind of Brink's vault garage.
