This is a terrific movie. The first time I saw McGraw in a movie I couldn't get stop watching his face. His bone structure in black and white could have been sculpted in marble, and that voice is amazing. I wish he could have been cloned.

Admirers of Charles McGraw's work might enjoy Alan K. Rode's book "Charles McGraw: Biography of a Film Noir Tough Guy." But I would warn the ending is a very sad one complete with drinking and family problems. However the work lives on.
