Newly Re-mastered in HD! Everyone wants a piece of Eddie Rice! John Payne (99 River Street, Hidden Fear) plays Eddie Rice, a highly decorated and wounded war veteran who has lost his memory. As he heads to Los Angeles to try and figure out his identity, two police detectives arrest him. Turns out he is really Eddie Riccardi, a former employee of the notorious mob boss Vince Alexander (Sonny Tufts, The Seven Year Itch). No one seems happy to see Eddie again and when he's framed for murder, Eddie must find the real killer and clear his name by navigating through the crooked underbelly of Los Angeles. Featuring top-notch direction by veteran filmmaker Robert Florey (The Cocoanuts) and stunning cinematography by the great John Alton (He Walked by Night, T-Men).
