Описание: Amid a semi-documentary portrait of New York and its people, Jean Dexter, attractive blonde model, is murdered in her apartment and homicide detectives Dan Muldoon and Jimmy Halloran investigate. Suspicion falls on various shifty characters who all prove to have some connection with a string of apartment burglaries. Then a burglar is found dead who once had an elusive partner named Willie... The climax is a very rapid manhunt sequence. All filmed on location.
Рецензии: Boring crime tale not helped any by the cornball acting and really lame storyline. I objected mostly to Barry Fitzgerald's annoying attempts at bringing comedy to his role; he just wasn't up to it. However, like the coppertop bunny he just kept going and going. And the killer - cool as a hog in a wallow, till the end when he suddenly lost his ability to reason things out. The only reason I didn't fall asleep during this movie was that I was riding my exercycle. 30 days in the hole would be preferable to seeing this turkey.
