Black Hand

Kelly in a rare dramatic role is an Italian-American out for revenge on the Black Hand, the Mafia-like organisation of extortionists who murdered his lawyer father. Training in the law himself, he enlists the help of New York police inspector Naish, who makes a courageous trip to Sicily to retrieve the information they need to crack the organisation. Although the two Irish-American leads aren't ideally cast, they both give a decent account of themselves in an unusual, neatly plotted little thriller.
