USA | 1948 | 62 minutes | Richard Fleischer

February 20, 2018

Hollywood's biggest badass is back! Legendary lawbreaker Lawrence Tierney is ironically cast as an insubordinate lawman who gets framed off the force and goes undercover to expose corruption and murder in the meat-packing industry! Perky Priscilla Lane provides spunky support. This early Richard Fleischer programmer moves at a breakneck pace with the story co-credited to-yes, that Robert Altman!

Noir City is presented by the Film Noir Foundation.
