4.0 out of 5 stars Good one! June 14 2004
By A Customer
Excellent noir. The cinematography is classic noir, with assured useage of shadow and light, foreground and background and tight close-ups. The action is gritty and realistic, with the slapping around looking positively brutal and much more frightening than the current movie industry standard of blood splattered gore fests. Mr Elam, in fact, was probably cast because of how pathetic he looked being beaten up! The story revolves around two set-ups, one intended and one a secondary effect. "This is America?" my husband queried as our innocent hero is "worked over" in the Kansas City jailhouse. The action moves south to Mexico where our hero pursues the true criminals in order to clear his name. The extent of the crime and the reasons for it as well as the set up are all eventually revealed in the small Mexican fishing village that is too small to hold all these hot tempered men. The pace slows down noticeably in the village, the only major flaw in this otherwise crackerjack film noir which must have influenced every current young urban crime-film director. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars ALPHA/GOTHAM QUALITY? April 11 2004
No need to comment on the story, it is engrossing. For a Gotham/Alpha release the sound and image quality is good, suprisingly good. Don't misunderstand, there is no crispness here. It's probably worth the money to purchase the Image version if the quality is better. There are some extras on Image version and none on the Gotham/Alpha version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Film Noir Classic April 22 2014
By Keith Little TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film is a true classic, I used to watch it when it came on tv once in a while but I hadn't seen it in years and bought this dvd. The print is fantastic and really allows me to appreciate this film all that much more. If you like film noir you should definitely give this movie a viewing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kansas ask for any thing more? Dec 24 2013

Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is one of the best tough guy movies ever, with a real hard boiled cast,John Payne ,Preston Foster ,Jack Elam ,Lee Van Cleef ,Neville Brand. It also has great muscular direction by Phil Karlson. For years this film has been in the public domain so the copies available for purchase were often not that good. This is however is a good transfer. It comes with a Blu-ray,dvd, and a post card of the movie poster. All this for a very reasonable price,so I'm very happy with my purchase.
