Elevator Pitch A desolute and alcoholic detective is given the task of getting an irritating black petty criminal to   a neighbourhood court , but once on the way he finds that the job is a poisoned chalice and that the young man is a target, since if he gets to the courthouse he is due to give evidence against police corruption.
Content Constant tension as the corrupt policemen attempt to eliminate the witness, resulting is gunfights, chases through a variety of buildings and a hijack of a metropolitan bus together with the passengers. Quite a bit of drinking but no sex drugs or nudity.
A View This is not a typical BW film, but it is well structured and is fun. Moderately well liked by everybody, but it did not seem to have made money. If you fancy a slighty different action film this is worth your time.
