“Wow, this was a neat little film, far better than I had hoped. I donu0026#39;t tape many shows on TV, but this was one Iu0026#39;m sure glad I did, especially since it is not available on VHS or DVD.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI say u0026quot;littleu0026quot; film because itu0026#39;s only 67 minutes long. Richard Fleischer, who directed THE NARROW MARGIN (1952), another short and fast-moving crime story, directed this movie, too, and you can see some similarities. The major similarity is how fast-paced these films are. Another is the presence of one of the best u0026#39;Bu0026#39; tough guys ever: Charles McGraw.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eBecause of that, and itu0026#39;s so interesting to view, itu0026#39;s one I plan on viewing a number of times. McGraw, as the cop, and William Talman, as the leader of the gang, are fun to watch.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eItu0026#39;s a heist tale and most of the film is about the gang trying to escape after the robbery and what happens to each one. In that regards, it reminds me a bit of another great film: THE ASPHALT JUNGLE, which also came out at this time. This isnu0026#39;t up to that level, but itu0026#39;s good and highly recommended viewing if you see it listed on TCM, where I saw it.”
