Film Series: Underworld U.S.A.

1961. USA. Dir: Sam Fuller. With Cliff Robertson. 99 min.


For reporter-cum-soldier-cum-filmmaker Fuller, “hard-hitting” wasn’t just a style – it was a way of life, epitomized here by the seedy sensationalism that led to many a battle with the Production Code Administration. In this grimy, aggressive noir, a small-time hood thirsts for revenge on the syndicate bosses who rubbed out his old man.
