Well, it looked good on paper: under cover of San Pablo’s annual fiesta, wander into town and blackmail mobster Fred Clark – but what if there’s no sale? Star/director Montgomery’s “Lucky” Gagin holes up at Oscar-nominated Thomas Gomez’s carousel, even as he can’t shake a pesky FBI man. Based on the novel by Dorothy B. Hughes. Produced by Joan Harrison. Screenplay by Ben Hecht and Charles Lederer (and Joan Harrison uncredited).
