Disillusioned ex-GI Lucky Gagin (Robert Montgomery, who directed) blew into a dusty New Mexico border town, looking for a fast score by running a blackmail on local crime boss Frank Hugo (Fred Clark). Unfortunately, the racketeer's not about to cooperate, and the would-be shakedown artist quickly finds himself in over his head. Long-demanded film noir co-stars Thomas Gomez, Wanda Hendrix, Art Smith, Andrea King. 101 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono; audio commentary; featurette; radio play.
