Working under a joint pseudonym, blacklisted director Joseph Losey and writer Ben Barzman blended Hollywood film noir and Italian neo-realism in this compelling drama. Paul Muni plays a penniless vagrant in an Italian port town who accidentally kills a shopkeeper. On the run from the police, the stranger is accompanied by a young street urchin (Vittorio Manunta), whom he tries to save from falling into a life of crime. Luisa Rossi co-stars. 82 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo.
