The movie was good but the book was great. Written by a former Boston prosecutor who had the vernacular and habits of small time hoods perfectly imitated.

Too bad she was too young to see this when it came out. I can just imagine her folks explaining to her about mob movies and R ratings. I remember I was about her age at the time and I got the same lecture she probably endured.

At the other end of his career, Mitchum shot scenes from the Howard Hawks-produced war picture Corvette K-225 here in Halifax in 1943, and was lucky enough to meet one of the drivers on that film years later, who got along famously with Mitchum and went out drinking with him more than once (he was hardly a star at the time, and he's uncredited in the film itself). I guess he was just one of the guys.
