Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 15 ratings.
The first thing I did after watching this movie was log onto Amazon and buy a book of Damon Runyon stories. In fact, I was a sucker for this film as soon as I read the plot synopsis and that TERRIFIC title. The image of a wounded and desperate ex-hood befriending an injured dog (whom he names Johnny One-Eye) is just GREAT stuff, you gotta admit.
Made in 1950, this is a next-to-no-budget film noir in the classic tradition. It's such an "unknown" that it didn't even make it into the book "Death On The Cheap; The Lost B Movies Of Film Noir". In addition to the terrific story, it has some striking, classically noir visuals, especially in the final scenes.
