THE CASE AGAINST BROOKLYN
1958, Sony Repertory, 82 min, USA, Dir: Paul Wendkos

A rookie cop (Darren McGavin) lays it all on the line when he goes undercover to checkmate the Syndicate and police corruption in Brooklyn. This fact-based film, adapted from crime reporter Ed Reid's story, was scripted by uncredited, blacklisted scribes Bernard Gordon (under the pseudonym Raymond T. Marcus) and Julian Zimet, and contains plenty of action and noir-stained ambiguity. Co-starring Maggie Hayes, Warren Stevens, Peggy McKay, Emile Meyer and Joe Turkel. NOT ON DVD!
