After his best friend Steve (Richard Beach) hooked up with gangster's
moll Faye (Wynne Gibson) and in the process got shot in a police raid for
a murder he didn't commit, cop Jimmy Murray (Kane Richmond) decides to go
after the gangsters himself - by hooking up with Faye - who thinks a cop
on her side might come in handy -, then intentionally being unhonourably
discharched , and trying to hook up with Taggart's gang (John Miljan), the
gang Faye's also a part of.
When he gets his girlfriend Ellen (Pauline
Moore) - Steve's sister, incidently - to shoot a picture of Taggart and
the mayor though, all hell breaks loose, and Taggart kills Faye, who he
thinks betrayed him, then puts Jimmy in a truck full of gunman and calls
the police commissioner (Robert Homans), who's Jimmy's father no less,
informing him that his own son is driving a truck with smuggled goods. The
commissioner doesn't want to let his son throw away his life, and tries to
meet him on his own, which plays right into Taggart's hands, as he wants
to have an opportunity to catch the commissioner alone and kill him. But
Jimmy can inform police headquarters about the real deal concerning his
truck via makeshift radio, and ultimately, all the gangsters inside the
truck are shot down by motorcycle cops before the truck has even reached
Jimmy's dad. And in the end of course, Jimmy is rehabilitated.
a great film, equipped with a rather predictable plot and rather obviously
made on the cheap, but also rather well-paced and competently directed to
remain entertaining throughout.
