NO CRIME TOO VICIOUS…NO JUSTICE TOO SWIFT FOR THE MERCHANTS OF DEATH WHO LURK IN ITS SHADOWS!
When a ship arrives in New York City with a huge load of opium, two federal agents (Scott Brady, Richard Rober) work together to stop the drug dealers who have laid their hands on the shipment. A crime drama that came in the wake of films like The Naked City (1948); it also shared a similar story with T-Men (1947). Takes advantage of the streets of New York and done in a documentary stil, with a narrating voice that pretty much kills all the tension. Yul Brynner (with hair!) is good in his first role as an icy, sophisticated killer.
1949-U.S. 86 min. B/W. Directed by Laslo Benedek. Cast: Scott Brady (Michael ”Micky” Waters), Richard Rober (Jim Flannery), K.T. Stevens (Toni Cardell), Yul Brynner (Paul Vicola), Arthur Blake.
