Fast- paced, plenty of sharp turns

Some familiar faces in this: John Hoyt, the undercover federal agent, was the malevolent antique dealer in "The Big Combo". James Todd, who played "Sylvester", was the journalist friend of Tyrone Power in "The Luck of the Irish". I was especially interested in watching this because I wanted to see the lovely, and very effective, Barbara Payton. Guess you could say I'm doing some research before reading her autobio "I Am Not Ashamed". She had beauty and talent, but ended up descending the slippery slope, much like Marilyn Maxwell. Neither of them were at fault. As to the movie, the pace was great, it was intelligent, but the ending was predictable. 3 stars.
Counterfeit crime movie the real deal
Well-directed and fastpaced crime thriller about counterfeiters chased by Treasury agents. Shady Lloyd Bridges and gangster moll Barbara Payton are totally credible as two lowlifes hoping to make the Big Time. The scenes with the government agents are less stodgy than usual, and only the finale fails to fully satisfy.Otherwise a must-see for crime movie fans.
