Brilliant expose, one more.
26 June 2015 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

I always enjoy the presence in this series of guest stars who have so enjoyable evil characters performances to pull. Watch out here the tremendous performance of Royal Dano as a cripple gang chief of a gambling racket. Look out for the first sequence when he speaks to his troops and humiliates one of his men in spite of his handicap. Terrific and so surprising scene. You also have here Robert Culp as a police officer helping the columnist Mc Nally to nail Dano and his crew. And, I almost forgot, Robert Vaugh is also in the run, as a rotten, corrupted official trying to bribe the cop Culp. I will never emphasize enough about the quality of this series, so perfectly done, with so much care to performances and details, and with such a noir atmosphere. I know there were many crime series in those times, but this one seems to have been unfairly forgotten. Such a shame.
