As the classic noir era waned, director Sam Fuller came out blasting with the first of a series of wildly original crime thrillers. This one is about a pair of L.A. cops (Glenn Corbett, James Shigeta) hunting the killer of a stripper. It twists into a heated romantic triangle with both cops falling for a key witness (Victoria Shaw), handling with compassion the Japanese cop's torment at falling for a Caucasian.
