Burnt-out plainclothes cop Barney Nolan (Edmond O’Brien, who co-directed) wanted the comfort of a house in the suburbs...and to that end, he claimed self-defense when he shot a notorious bookie, while surreptitiously pocketing $25,000. Between the prying of a suspicious colleague (John Agar) and the emergence of an eyewitness, his retirement planning might unravel in a most fatal manner. Gritty tale co-stars Marla English, Carolyn Jones, Claude Akins. 82 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono; theatrical trailers.
