Review by Anonymous (posted on 14-Feb-2008)

I saw the film in late 40's. Then again a few months back on AMC or TCM, don't remember which. Conti had/has always been one of my favorite actors. I remembered segments of the film from teenage years and basically recalled how it eneded. Felt it was a good film, with a good plot. Viewed some of the script a little far fetched. Since I am a retired military person, Know portions of it, could ONLY happen in the movies. Felt Conti was better than Cagney.
