A bookish teenager (John Drew Barrymore) idolized his tough barkeep dad (Preston Foster) without reservation...until the night the old man took a pummeling from a patron (Howard St. John) without fighting back. The kid grabs a gun with the intent of tracking the assailant down for payback, but his journey into those dark alleys dredges up some sobering family secrets. Joseph Losey's noirish drama co-stars Joan Lorring, Dorothy Comingore. 76 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
