  • Surpriseingly good film noir!

    I saw this film for the first time this morning and was really surprised at how tightly woven the story is and how good Glenn Ford is in it in the role of a Treasury Agent out to get a mob boss who is cunningly smart in avoiding the law. It's really a play on the trial of Al Capone who was finally jailed on tax evasion but this film is the best interpretation of the effort it took to bring Capone down. Nina Foch plays Ford's wife but it's not a big part but it does show how beautiful and talented she was at a young age. Keep your eye out of Kay Medford as a show girl named Gladys Levine who gets tied up with the mob bookkeeper. Medford is young and gorgeous here and, decades later, she played Barbara Streisand's mother in the film "Funny Girl" and she was simply terrific in that film too! Mention should definitely be made of James Whitmore who is Ford's right-hand man and helps him through the ordeal of bringing down Warren, the mobster, aka Capone. I liked this film immensely and give it four out of five stars!

    This film should be better known. A bit like The Untouchables without the violence. Well acted all round, very realistic story and stylishly directed by cult director Joseph H Lewis. Plot involves pinning down gangster boss for tax evasion and the dogged routine the tax men have to go through to catch him. All very believable and worthy of repeat viewing. Glad I caught it on TV.
