Plot Summary

Mob boss Little John Sarto (Edward G. Robinson) cedes control of his territory to Jack Buck (Humphrey Bogart) and leaves town on a grand European tour. Five years later, Sarto tries to take back his turf, but his moll, Flo Addams (Ann Sothern), accidentally leads him into a trap where he's left for dead.
