Has it all...

How could I have missed this movie? I have no memory of every seeing it. I ordered this a couple of months ago, but have been reading. I've just finished viewing it and it counts among the great classic movies. It has it all, intrigue, crime, betrayal, setup, revenge and love. It has no profanity but some killing. If you pay attention and follow along it becomes an engrossing exciting movie. God gives justice is carved on the walls of the prison cells. As in life itself, there is judgement, truth, grace and punishment for sin. And so it is in this classic.
