Drama, Action & Adventure
This tale of gangsters and gunplay features an all-star cast that includes Robert Lowery, Regis Toomey, Elisha Cook Jr., and Ellen Drew. It’s all about a woman who unwittingly marries a man with a shady past. When she’s connected to a murder he committed, she hides out in a mountain cabin with some help from an ex-boyfriend. Unfortunately, her dangerous husband is on the hunt for her and he’s deadly serious. It’s rugged action and thrills from director William Berke, a handy filmmaker who gave us such titles as Dick Tracy, Shoot to Kill, and Caged Fury. (BW)
