This is a really good film, much under appreciated, or at least unknown. I have a dvd (very decent print too). Brian Donlevy is an actor I really like and this is one of his rather rare starring roles. Charles Coburn seems an odd choice for the "cop" , but he does a good job. And the gal is very good as the "femme fatale". The "crash" scene is obviously done using models, but it looks very "real", someone put some effort into that one.
