This is one of my favorite films noir, made on the cheap at Eagle-Lion Films. Full Review
...Memorable....Engrossing... -- Rating: B+
The credits indicate Alfred L. Werker only, but this thriller is of a piece with the noir circle of T-Men and Raw Deal, courtesy of an uncredited Anthony Mann.
Rating: 9/10 -- One of the most nasty-minded, brutal dramas in a genre noted for - practically defined by - its overwhelming nihilism. Full Review
Antagony & Ecstasy
A visual high point of film noir. Full Review
Classic Film and Television
Rating: A -- Stylishly presented. Full Review

...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."
