    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. 7 years 7 months ago

    During the intro- it is explained that this was shot on location through out New York rather than in a studio. I wish the intro had been done as a prelude, rather than a continued narration. 5 months 1 week ago

    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. 7 years 12 months ago
