Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

Screen legends Ginger Rogers (Swing Time), Edward G Robinson (The Whole Town’s Talking) and Brian Keith (5 Against the House) team up for this tense film noir drama.

US attorney Lloyd Hallet offers gangster’s moll Sherry Conley a deal – she will walk free if she testifies in the trial of notorious mobster Benjamin Costain. With Conley hiding out in a hotel, Lieutenant Striker seeks to protect her from Costain’s men... but Striker isn’t all he appears to be.

Loosely based on the real-life case of Virginia Hill, girlfriend of Bugsy Siegel, with a screenplay by William Bowers (Support Your Local Sheriff) and directed by noir specialist Phil Karlson (Scandal Sheet), Tight Spot expertly blends action, romance, and drama."
