Joseph Losey's last American film (1951) before the blacklist drove him to Europe. A teenage boy sees his father beaten by gangsters; his revenge takes on a distinctly Oedipal tone as he rages through the LA night-world, gun in hand. Close, jittery, and very personal—the themes and characters echo through much of Losey's later work. With John Drew Barrymore, Preston Foster, and Dorothy Comingdore (Citizen Kane).
