Our Score
In this crime drama, a Brooklyn tailor and a short-order chef enjoy their little fishing trips around the bay, until a minor league gangster moves in, offering them protection and the tailor's daughter something else. So a plot is hatched to dispense with the mafioso's services. More of a character study than a thriller, it spins on a surprising twist and then goes on to become a sentimental tale about exploitation. Irwin Shaw's source play (presented on Broadway by Lee Strasberg's left-wing Group Theatre, out of which came the Actor's Studio and the Method) is subtly opened out by director Anatole Litvak.


A girl falls for a hoodlum, unaware he is extorting money from her father. Romantic thriller, starring John Garfield, Ida Lupino, Thomas Mitchell, Eddie Albert and George Tobias.
