The Glass Key
Intricate mystery about a slightly corrupt politician, accused of murder, who solicits his right-hand man (Ladd) to hunt down the real killer. As he searches Ladd must endure a brutal beating from gangsters, the annoying hindrance of the police and the beguiling advances of his boss' fiancee.
Brian Donlevy, Veronica Lake, Alan Ladd, William Bendix, Bonita Granville, Richard Denning, Joseph Calleia.
Outstanding performances by everyone. William Bendix just about steals the movie with his over the top portrayal of an extremely violent henchmen. ~Mike
