In this 1957 crime drama, one of the grittiest to come out of the era, Kerwin Matthews stars as Alan Mitchell, a soldier who returns home from Vietnam only to find himself working for his gruff father (Lee J. Cobb) at his New York City clothing company. After realizing that the man who comes to collect money from his father is in fact a union-busting hoodlum, Alan quickly discovers the severe level of corruption plaguing the Garment District. This film-noir gem features a young Robert Loggia's first credited role.
