After he is dismissed for harassing a suburban baker (Gene Barry) whom he's convinced is a violent killer, a senior cop Sterling Hayden continues to hunt his quarry. When he finds himself in trouble in a Mexican bordertown, he is helped by Barry's girlfriend Gloria Grahame.
Directed by Jerry Hopper, this mix of detective thriller, gangster movie and film noir starts promisingly enough but degenerates about a third of the way through as a result of a derivative screenplay and some unconvincing characterisation. Grahame, Hollywood's favourite put-upon moll, is terrific as usual, while the men are ok.
