Persistence is Dave Bannion’s best quality as a policeman. He is courageous, incorruptible and fearless. However, in his mission to fight organised crime, he loses himself and gradually becomes obsessive and ruthless. Despite warnings from his superiors, Bannion continues investigations outside of his jurisdiction and finds himself in a labyrinth of lies and corruption. Far from a classical hero, he repeatedly sacrifices the lives of his informants, and ultimately fails to keep up the delicate line he drew between his domestic life and the violent outside world.

USA, 1953, 89 minutes, English, directed by Fritz Lang
