Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

This nifty little B-thriller finds Alan Ladd working for the Post Office's detective branch, tracking down the murderers of a colleague and foiling a robbery by posing as a corrupt cop. Phyllis Calvert plays a nun on the run who witnessed the murder in a film that packs a lot into its short running time. Moodily shot by master cameraman John F Seitz, the film noir proceedings are smartly handled by Lewis Allen, the man who directed that minor Frank Sinatra classic, Suddenly in 1954.
