Editorial Review

A slightly dim-witted ex-boxer, working on the docks of Hoboken's waterfront, is challenged to step up to the mobsters who control the longshoremen's' union by appearing before a state commission as witness after his lawyer brother and best friend are rubbed out. Prodding him to this calling are the local priest and the girl he loves -- the sister of his murdered friend.
