    Previous reviewer Larry Welk really nailed it when he wrote that this early 60s juvenile delinquent/vigilante film smacks of TV. You have the general feel while watching it of an episode of The Dick Powell Theatre or Alfred Hitchcock Presents. Not that there's anything wrong with that! It's certainly watchable and the pacing is decent, as is the acting, and the story holds up fairly well, with things going off the rails only in the last twenty minutes with a ridiculously out of left field suicide of a character about whom we know little and care for even less. It's just that, well, gosh darn it, this is supposed to be Turner Classic MOVIES, isn't it and not Turner Classic TV? So let's give it a C plus. P.S. Interesting that in this film, made just one year before America lost its innocence in Dallas, the hero stops just short of killing the vicious young punk. Twelve years later, following JFK's assassination and Vietnam, Chuck Bronson cheerfully blows away several young thugs in "Death Wish" (another rather TVish film from an average British director.)

    This movie was an acceptable tv-like presentation of a man bent on delivering retribution to the preppy punks who had beaten & seriously injured him & whose wife laconically tempered his murderous rage to the level of being satisfied with thrashing & nearly drowning the chief punk! It was interesting to hear the term 'senseless attack' in the context of uncalled for brutality as if acquainting the watchers of things to come! R.S. played a good, toned down detective as did A.L. in his role of the attackee & the actor attackers!i

    This is a good, gritty crime drama. I saw it when TCM played a day of Alan Ladd films during its annual Summer Under The Stars Festival, back in 2007 I think. I don't remember it being aired since then. This would be one of Ladd's last films before his death in 1964, and he's very good in it. Please show it again soon TCM.
