Description by OLDIES.com:

This Forgotten Film Noir includes Portland Expose and They Were So Young. In the 1950's "Life" Magazine printed a blistering expose on the rampant sin, crime and Teamsters-controlled corruption that at the time had a stranglehold on Portland, Oregon. Producer Lindsley Parsons seized upon the considerable publicity and assembled a cast of great character actors for the starring roles. Although the film crew was threatened with physical violence, the result is a dark and gritty filmed-on-location crime drama that contains considerable violence for a 1950's movie, most notable a violent rape scene with the Frank Gorshin character and a teenage girl. In the second feature, They Were So Young, five European models arrive in Rio de Janeiro and become trapped in a white slavery ring. An exciting crime melodrama with Raymond Burr at his villainous best!
