PORTLAND EXPOSÉ – In the 1950’s LIFE Magazine printed a blistering exposé on the rampant sin, crime and Teamsters-controlled corruption that at the time had a stranglehold on Portland, Oregon. Producer Lindsley Parsons seized upon the considerable publicity and assembled a cast of great character actors for the starring roles. Although the film crew was threatened with physical violence, the result is a dark and gritty filmed-on-location crime drama that contains considerable violence for a 1950’s movie, most notably a violent rape scene with the Frank Gorshin character and a teenage girl. 1957|72 min.|B&W|1.85:1/Widescreen|NR
