After spending 5 years in Alcatraz, Johnny Clay decides that if he’s going to commit crimes, the risk had better be worth the punishment. He then proceeds to mastermind a brilliant criminal scheme to steal $2,000,000 from a local racetrack in which "no one will get hurt". The only flaw in his plan is that he does not consider one of his co-horts’ greedy, shrewish wife and her ruthless boyfriend.

Kirk Douglas was so impressed with this film that he sought out the director for his next project "Paths Of Glory" (1957).
