Johnny McBride blows into Lyncastle on a mission of revenge. His best friend - a man who was his exact double - died in an accident trying to save Johnny's life. He left behind a letter revealing how he'd been framed and run out of Lyncastle, a ruined man, how he had been deprived of his money, his honor, and his girl. So Johnny sets out to get the mob who had double-crossed him. How he pulls off this dangerous, gutter-tough job and manages to hold on to his skin, makes this Mickey Spillane novel a most nerve-tingling thriller! In spite of being a low budget film, the directing, acting and photography is spot on. Anthony Quinn, Gene Evans and Charles Coburn take their character roles seriously and give impeccable performances. The lovely ballad that plays over the credits, 'Once', is appropriately used throughout the movie and deserves to be a standard. The book is showcased within a clear lucite box. It allows for safe handling and excellent viewing.
