Approved | | Drama
Two New York City longshoremen Axel Nordmann, an Army deserter and Tommy Tyler, an easy-going freight car loader whose growing friendship is threatened by Charles Malik, a notably repellent punk.
Four years later Sidney Poitier & Ruby Dee who play husband and wife in this film would play husband and wife again in the classic "A Raisin In The Sun".
When Alex is fighting Charlie and they end up on the tracks near the end of the rail car Alex picks up a hunk of pipe that bends while he is swinging it. Charlie then hits him a couple of times in the gut. When Alex falls on the ground, it is obvious he has padding under his jacket to absorb the blows which disappears in the next shot. When Alex chokes Charlie unconscious and then turns him around to drag him to the police, the bigger Charlie is replaced by a dummy so that Alex can appear to be dragging him.
