Humphrey Bogart (The Maltese Falcon) is in fine form as a crusading District Attorney out to convict the head of a vicious murder-for-hire ring. But when his star witness is killed, Bogart must race against time to find the evidence he needs to bring down the mob boss. Told in a series of flashbacks, this tense, tough-as-nails crime thriller on the cutting edge of film noir was based on actual Murder, Inc. trials. Stylishly directed by Bretaigne Windust (June Bride) with uncredited help from Raoul Walsh (Pursued) and beautifully shot by the great Robert Burks (North by Northwest). The stellar cast includes Zero Mostel, Ted de Corsia and Everett Sloane.
