Ah, when a gangster's attorney falls in love... A long-forgotten film noir, with Garfield as a corrupt mob lawyer intent on running the small-time numbers-runners of the city out of business so his client can pick up the pieces. Not a good guy in the bunch, and his role was so damaging it almost ended Garfield's career. A thinly-veiled outright damnation of capitalism and its merger-heavy practices. Heavy-handed but quite intriguing and poetic.
