Awesome film. They don't make them like this anymore.
You really have to admire the style of it. It had such an interesting and lovely direction to it. Dassin and the cast did a nice job with this one.
Swell guys called Jimmy, scrupleless gangsters, gammy dames, histrionic old bags, and coppers with Irish accents. Not really my kind of movie, but I loved the snapshots of old school NYC. I also enjoyed the creative narration play and guerilla-style street filming.
