Noirish filming of Irwin Shaw's play "The Gentle People" stars John Garfield as a Brooklyn mobster who squeezes weekly protection money from two humble Sheepshead Bay fishermen (Thomas Mitchell and John Qualen). But when Garfield sets his sights on Mitchell's daughter (Ida Lupino)─and she doesn't exactly resist─the two pals plot to get rid of the gangster once and for all. Eddie Albert co-stars. 92 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
