Details

Crime thriller directed by Fritz Lang and starring Glenn Ford, Gloria Grahame and Jocelyn Brando.

Officer Dave Bannion (Ford) suspects that his police force is being manipulated by a brutal gangster and doggedly follows the felon's trail. After a colleague commits suicide and his fellow officers fall utterly silent on the matter, Bannion knows something is seriously amiss.

As the threat against Bannion and his loved ones grows, he steps outside the bounds of the law in his  hunt for the gangster, enlisting the help of his enemy's jilted girlfriend, Debby (Grahame). Also stars Lee Marvin as the mobster's psychotic henchman. 

Beautifully presented by Indicator, this high definition remaster is packed with extras and limited to 5000 copies.
