Dick Powell stars as John Kennedy, a detective who is trying to protect President Lincoln from being killed while in Baltimore. This is great story telling from director Anthony Mann. Paula Raymond, Adolphe Menjou, Marshall Thompson and Ruby Dee co-star in this top notch effort.
This has a lot of film noir overtones and is one of the best films Powell made later in his career. Thompson plays one of the assassins out to kill the President.
A highly recommended film and an excellent print from Warner Archive.
