Based on the true story of a muckraking New York journalist who was blinded by acid for trying to expose the evils of garment industry bosses, this film is one of the toughest “exposé” pictures of the 1950s. The fierce script by Harry Kleiner is directed by both Robert Aldrich (the project’s original helmer) and Vincent Sherman (who replaced him during filming). The result is seamless, and the performances are uniformly first-rate, from a cast that includes Lee J. Cobb, Kerwin Matthews (pre-Sinbad), Gia Scala, Richard Boone, Joseph Wiseman, and a young and fiery Robert Loggia.
