This late entry in the noir cycle, based on Irving Shulman’s popular novel, explores social realism in the barrio and features a stunning performance by John Saxon as a Puerto Rican ex-con pulled every which way by familial pressures, a love affair (with beautiful co-star Linda Cristal) and the lure of his former gang.
