Here's part of the plot - Tim Foster (Preston Foster) recruits three criminals to help him rob an armored truck- Pete Harris (Jack Elam), Boyd Kane (Neville Brand), and Tony Romano (Lee Van Cleef) --- All star "Noirish" cast of characters and it's right up there with some outstanding dialogue film noir style.
One of the best John Payne noir films -- Definitely entertaining and you can watch this over and over again, catching some scenes you may have missed for full enjoyment -- In many of his films he was an ordinary-guy protagonists in the noir cycle -- Payne is tough, all right, but still shows the flop-sweat of fear; and he's smart, too, but because he's forced to be - what he's trying to hang onto is all he's got, that's gotta be noir at it's best.

I cannot say how good the blu-ray is or if it has any bonus features. Hopefully someone who sees the blu-ray will write a review and let us know. However, if it is an official MGM release, the worse they can do is transfer the same print they already have used for DVD, which is good.
I originally had this movie, along with many others, on a couple cheap film noir collections that I picked up at Wal-Mart. Of the 20 or so movies in those collections, I thought 4 were really great films that I'd like to have a good DVD transfer of. This movie is among my favourite film noir and when the price finally went down (around $10 or less) I ordered it. The picture and sound quality is far superior on this DVD, compared to the cheapie collections I had. Oddly enough, I did find and order 3 other films as well... and one transfer (for the film QUICKSAND, starring Mickey Rooney) was actually WORSE than on my cheapie collection.

Excellent film noir. Great camera angles/shots, nice clean transfer. Great story and some excellent performances. Loved all the supporting "thug" characters. Read morePublished 16 months ago by loob
This movie is well worth having in your film noir library. Always been a fan of Jack Elam and he does not disappoint in this film. All the acting and action is first rate.Published on Nov. 6 2013 by Ed Duplissie
No need to comment on the story, it is engrossing. For a Gotham/Alpha release the sound and image quality is good, suprisingly good. Read morePublished on April 11 2004 by T. A. Hansen
