I watched WITHIN THE LAW and found it a fun programmer. I was especially interested as both Paul Kelly and Tom Neal were in the cast and I've long thought that there was a facial resemblance between the two.

 

They had something else in common - Paul Kelly had already served time for manslaughter and Tom Neal would do the same in the future.

 

Also noteworthy is that this was directed by Gustav Machat? who directed Hedy Lamarr in ECSTASY. He didn't fare too well in the States, getting little more than some uncredited second unit or retake work, "B" movies and a "Crime Does Not Pay" short.

I though the name sounded familiar, but I was too lazy to look it up! ;)
