Actress Jean Wallace lived a life that in many ways was more sensational than her role in this noir gangster story. The teen fashion model tried to become a movie star for many years but it seems that she had trouble pleasing the studios, and they soon stopped giving her parts in movies.

In 1941 she met actor Franchot Tone, who had divorced his first wife Joan Crawford. Their torrid love affair culminated in marriage, but after two children and seven years with Tone, Jean Wallace tried to commit suicide twice to get out of the marriage. Jean Wallace accused Franchot Tone of having an affair with blonde beauty Barbara Payton, and Franchot Tone accused Jean Wallace of having an affair with the bodyguard of notorious mobster Mickey Cohen.

After the divorce Tone went on to marry his next starlet conquest Barbara Payton, and Jean Wallace would meet and marry actor Cornel Wilde, her co-star in this noir thriller. They acted together in movies until their divorce in 1980, when Jean would decide to live with an assortment of pets instead of men. She seems to have found more comfort in pets like a tarantula than the men she hooked up with.

In this gangster story her real-life husband Cornel Wilde is a hard-boiled cop searching in vain for evidence that would put notorious gangster Mr. Green, played by Richard Conte, behind bars. Unfortunately, Mr. Green is so smooth and so smart that the cops cannot charge him with as much as jaywalking, let alone organized crime.

Tough Cop, tough gangster, and a gal that may be tougher than both of them, dance their way through an adventure in the dark underbelly of the big city. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
