cast: John Garfield, Thomas Gomez, Marie Windsor
A one man show for revved-up John Garfield: proving how fun it is to be bad. He's a crooked lawyer trying to get his "banker" brother (head of a small-time numbers racket) to think like a criminal to make real dough. Soon enough the mob, and the heat, moves in and Garfield, while falling in love with a sweet-natured girl, must decide between good and evil. Unfortunately he chooses good and instead of a no-nonsense criminal flick we get a moral-driven melodrama that, after shedding all things sinister, limps along to a dull conclusion.
