In a way it has aged; in the other hand, its a pioneer of police melodrama, in a situation of laboratory, with hostages and psicocriminals. Characters seem intelligent ans sophisticated in involuntary idiot subplots, then act in a too intelligent way. Bogey and March are impecable.

"Watched: 27.4. Bogie makes the performance as well, but I think him has created tough guy detective roles than role like this. But it was a nice change from him. Fredric March was also great. "
