Time Out says

Psycho-killers Julian and Dancer (Keith and Wallach) are hired to recover a heroin haul. Among their professional touches is noting down their victim's last words ('Why be greedy?'). But they can be unprofessional too - like wanting to know more about The Man who hired them. From this premise of hitmen rising above their station, Siegel was later to remake The Killers. But this b/w B version, with its passionless psychos stalking San Francisco, is the more brutal, sadistic and threatening. DMacp.
