Summary
This classic film noir concentrates on interrelated episodes in the lives of several London policemen. Aveteran cop is murdered by small-time delinquents Tom Riley and Spud. Rookie cop Andy Mitchell, who looked up to the veteran policeman as a father figure, embarks on a perilous search to bring his mentor2s killers to justice. Shot in a pioneering semi-documentary style by Gordon Dines (Pool ofLondon), the film focuses on ordinary heroes and a new breed of young criminal, hardened by the war years, whose recklessness and violence contrasts with the discipline of the older criminal fraternity.
