A so-so movie, worth watching only because of the presence of the lovely Allene Roberts. At least twice in just 2 years she suffers the same fate, in "Knock on any Door" she becomes pregnant when in love with another two-bit crook and is driven to suicide. She has such an appealing quality, it's impossible not to empathize with all of the characters she has portrayed, her film career deserved better. As far as I know, she is still living, such a lovely lady.
The Hoodlum (1951)
Solid "B" crime thriller with good performances and a great atmosphere. The lead character is so cold and despicable - it really gets you involved in the film. Good score.
Uncompromisingly Bleak Eagle Lion B Film
This film is remarkable for its central protagonist - a brutal, thugish, dispicable, and entirely unlikeable main charachter. What possessed the producers to tell the tale of a person that an audience would not like in the slightest is a testament to the times in which it was made. And although he's a monster, there a moments the director tries to enfuse the character with some sympathy (but it's brief!). Another great example of the unusual output of the great B-Studios.
