Gripping and very well made film noir starring Barry Sullivan as Shubunka, a ruthless gangster who is slowly losing control of his empire as a bigger gangster wants to take over.
Sheldon Leonard is Cornell, the an who is taking over Sullivan's numbers rackets, and he does an excellent job playing a hood. The supporting cast is one of the best and includes Fifi D' Orsay, John Ireland, Akim Tamaroff (as Shubunka's number one man), Harry Morgan, Virginia Christine, Elisha Cook, Jr (as a trigger happy gunman) and Belita as Shubunka's woman who actually turns tables on him.
Great twist ending and a tight plot make this a winner. Nice to see Warner churning out the Allied Artists library it owns.
