Very good film :)

The french title was changed , but the story too... from a story between FBI and Communists spies, the french version was a story between police and drugs traffickers , because the real story was judged too "anti-communist" for french public at this time (1/3 rd of the people was voting for "PCF" at these times in France ... and "Macarthism" had not many fans here :D )

But when watching the film nowadays, it seems quite exaggerated, because the Sam's Fuller film is not at all a McCarthy's propaganda ;)

The actress Jean Peters... so pretty :love:

This not a NYC Subway. The action was pretending taking place in NYC, but in fact was played in L.A. and most in Hollywood studios.

Je sens que Pilou va s'éclater sur celui-là ;)

Pas de quoi, Sixcyl. Pour une fois que je tombe sur ce genre de film une minute avant Pilou. Lui a vraiment l'oeil, et moi souvent la flemme de rechercher dans mes bouquins pour donner le modèle exact. En tout cas merci pour tous les bons films.
