Interesting little film that nobody seems to know about.

Two rival New York gangsters, Allie (Johnny Seven) and Johnny G. (Martin E. Brooks), are involved in a turf war after a top mob boss is arrested by the Feds.

The movie is set up to show both men talking and making decisions about each other and all of this scene switching brings both characters to a meeting in the interesting ending.

This is a very rare film from the 1950's and it's a shame more people don't know about it, especially noir fans. It has a great jazz score and tons of excellent scenes and set pieces.

I had never heard of this film and came across it by accident on Tubi and gave it a whirl. I was not disappointed. The performances are all good and director Art Ford is very capable of handling the directing chores.

If you get a chance, check this one out. I haven't said too much about the film here simply because I don't want to spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen the film yet.
