Linda Rollins (Jane Russell) has just seen her luck go from bad to worse. A casino owner’s been bumped off, her diamond necklace is missing, and her shady husband (Vincent Price) is suspected of the crimes. So when her bitter ex-flame, police lieutenant Dave Andrews (Victor Mature), takes charge of the case, all bets are off, especially after the killer kidnaps Linda and threatens to cash in all her chips. This hard-boiled thriller features one of the earliest helicopter/car chases ever filmed, as well as three songs by costar Hoagy Carmichael.
