"...A famous 'B' about an L.A. cop killer..."
A burglar becomes a cold-blooded cop killer and is hunted down on the streets of Los Angeles. The men in blue manage to track their suspect down into the bowels of the city--the labyrinth sewer system. Noir veteran Anthony Mann, though uncredited, co-directed the film. Well-done and supposedly an inspiration for Jack Webb's Dragnet TV series.
- This police thriller was the inspiration for cast member Jack Webb's classic TV show "Dragnet." The film even includes this famous line: "The names have been changed to protect the innocent."
