Containing Multitudes Since 2004
This movie is one tough little nut, that's for sure. When Richard Kiley's commie bad guy shot Jean Peters in the back I almost jumped out of my seat. Also, the best fistfight in movie history. Period.
Yeah, Kiley was a major slime-ball in this one and I remembered that when I saw the "Night Gallery" episode he was in. I was really impressed with Peters in this film, which wasn't preachy until the very end. Widmark was amazingly sympathetic for that period, but let's face it, everybody loved a cheap crook up against a Commie rat. ;-)
flawless film noir
