Our rating:

Cy Endfield's harsh film noir stars Frank Lovejoy and Lloyd Bridges as Howard Tyler and Jerry Slocum, a couple of down-and-outs who kidnap the son of a wealthy family but panic and kill him. They are arrested and in the local jail awaiting trial, when the inflammatory columns of local newspaper journalist Gil Stanton (Richard Carlson) stir up the residents of the small town of Santa Sierra into a hateful lynch mob who storm the jail, intent on murder.

The film is based on an incident that happened in 1933 in California, which was also used by Fritz Lang for his film Fury .
