Screenplay by Martin Goldsmith, from a story by Nat Dallinger.
Howard Duff is terrific as an unscrupulous “Weegee”-style newspaper photographer in this slam-bang tabloid-style programmer, set entirely in 1950 San Francisco, shown in all its glory from skid row to Nob Hill. Duff’s character, Jack Early, lives up to the film’s original title, The Magnificent Heel. Costarring Brian Donlevy, Peggy Dow and Lawrence Tierney at his sneering, sinister best. Don’t blink or you’ll miss one of Rock Hudson’s first screen appearances!
