"This is Thelma Ritter's movie. She transforms what could have been no more than a colorful eccentric to a figure of unshakable dignity." -- Charles Taylor - VILLAGE VOICE
In noir director SAMUEL FULLER's Red Scare thriller, a pickpocket (RICHARD WIDMARK) unwittingly lifts a message destined for enemy agents and becomes an unwitting target for a Communist spy ring.

Of Oscar-nominated actor THELMA RITTER (in the role of informant Moe Williams), the VILLAGE VOICE's Charles Taylor says:

"As good as are Widmark, with his proto-Method grin, and (Jean) Peters, with her tawny, untutored naturalism, this is Thelma Ritter's movie. She transforms what could have been no more than a colorful eccentric to a figure of unshakable dignity."
