Overview

FBI operative Mark Stevens is dispatched by his boss Lloyd Nolan to infiltrate a criminal gang. Stevens ingratiates himself with Richard Widmark, the gang's leader, then helps concoct a robbery that will deliver the criminals into the hands of the authorities. But there's an informant in the police department, who gets word back to Widmark. Aware that there's a stoolie in his gang, Widmark automatically assumes that his wife Barbara Lawrence is the guilty party, and beats her senseless. Eventually determining that Stevens is the "mole," Widmark methodically plans to kill Stevens during a holdup; by this time, however, the FBI is a step or so ahead of him. Remade in 1955 by Samuel Fuller as House of Bamboo.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
A taut, gripping documentary-styled crime thriller, The Street with No Name may not be at the absolute top of its class, but it will undoubtedly please fans of the genre. Certainly, Harry Kleiner's screenplay knows how to push all the right buttons. It sets up its story in a classic, no-nonsense way that puts all the players in their appropriate places, gives them the motivations they need, and provides plot pieces that fall right into order in an efficient yet still engaging manner. It's mostly manipulation, but it doesn't really hide that, and most viewers will be happy to be taken along for a ride as the story barrels along its way. William Keighley directs in a clean, get-the-job-done manner that is exactly what is called for, pausing ever so slightly every now and then to throw in an interesting camera angle here or a surprising little move there. Joe MacDonald's cinematography has Keighley's back, maximizing tension when necessary and pulling back for a breather at other times. Mark Stevens is fine as the hero; he's no distinctive personality, but he registers. Much more impressive is Richard Widmark, proving again that he had a wonderful way with villainy.
