"[A] a richly layered and dense, yet compact movie..." - Jeffrey Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
The kill-or-be-killed world of organized crime is the focus of this hard-hitting exposé from the Oscar-nominated writing team of Russell Rouse and Clarence Greene. Broderick Crawford is the New York City mob boss dealing out death as the answer to every crisis: from a minor member of his own syndicate, to a Washington lobbyist, to his own hired killers!

Gritty, like a cigarette ash inadvertently inhaled.
To me it was a very clean classic movie.Movies aren't made like that anymore.I could watch it anytime.
Great cast...kept my interest
Good old school movie
Interesting. Propaganda of course; but likely an accurate representation as well.
Decent and engaging dark drama.
back in the days when bad guys HAD TO DIE -- and the innocent daughters killed themselves in shame. . . Anne Bancroft never better! Marilyn Maxwell stunning. Broderick Crawford --- what can I say? I love Broderick Crawford.
Great movie with great actors. I loved it.

Broderick Crawford at his best. Tough guy with a soft heart.
