Border Incident

Conventional script about two immigration service agents who join hands across the border to smash a murderous racket exploiting cheap Mexican labour. Lifted right out of the rut by John Alton's camerawork, which helps Mann to transform routine heroics into the stuff of film noir. However well-trodden its path, the film shines bright by comparison with Tony Richardson's later The Border, which treated a similar subject with twice the ambition and half the conviction.
