I saw this so called "B" film on the same bill as City Across the River in the early 1950's and I enjoyed both films. I liked the performances of the players particularly that of promising newcomer Jaclynne Greene who played the part of Vera. She really chewed up the scenery as a plain Jane (they called her "Ugly") and she was fond of one of the thugs. Of course they get into trouble when a murder takes place. Although the plot is thin it is fun watching these players ramble through the darkly lit city streets in what I consider a camp classic. I often wonder what happend to Jaclynne Greene and her career? I also wish that this Universal-International film was on video as I would like to see it again.
