STARRING:
Fred MacMurray, Raymond Burr
DIRECTED BY:
William A. Seiter
GENRE:
Drama, Film Noir
Two undercover agents unwittingly stalk the same target in this 1950 drama set in Mexico. Fred MacMurray is back in tough guy mode as Johnny Macklin, a disguised agent on the trail of drug smuggler Pete Richie (Raymond Burr, the ultimate noir bad guy!). But a female officer has already gone undercover to nab Ritchie, and is already closing in. Claire Trevor stars as Officer Madeleine Haley, the woman caught between MacMurray and Burr. What a predicament! Director William A. Seiter (Sons of the Desert, Roberta) spins a great, fast-moving crime yarn. (BW)
