Description by OLDIES.com:
Low budget quickie movie company PRC shifted gears a bit for Crime, Inc., a remarkably tight, upscale-looking B-thriller complete with songs, tense drama, plot complexities and great performances. The cast is a mix of familiar players that made the rounds at several studios in the 1940s. Sheldon Leonard is cast as a police captain, although the actor played sharp-mouthed criminals and gangster bosses in numerous films. Accent specialist Leo Carrillo is best remembered for his co-starring role on the TV series "The Cisco Kid." Lionel Atwill was a fixture in horror and mystery films of the era, mastering everything from a mad scientist in The Vampire Bat to a calculating killer in The Sphinx. Director Lew Landers worked for nearly every studio in Hollywood making low-budget thrillers (The Raven, Tokyo Rose) and later turned his attention to television, directing popular series like "Topper" and "Highway Patrol."
Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 207 ratings.
There is a plot...& it makes sense. There are actors...& they do a good job acting. If this was considered a B movie, it deserved better. There are a couple of "not explained" points in the script, but they're easily overlooked. The musical numbers are even excellent! Tom Neal showed what he could do in this film, & it's too bad he didn't always get the same chance in other films. (Watch for his facial expressions!) Danny Morton was ahead of his time, there's something almost "Elvis-ish" about him. Wonder why he wasn't made into a 'heart-throb'? Anyway, this is an A movie to have in your collection. You'll really enjoy it,,,promise!
