Director: George Sherman with Shelley Winters, Richard Conte, Stephen McNally, Charles Bickford, Alex Nicol, and John McIntire. Interesting cast makes this film entertaining. IMDb synopsis San Francisco hood Bruno Falkin (Conte) rubs out rival and reports the crime to Homicide Lieut. Kelsey McNally) in an alibi scheme which fails. To escape, he stows away on a fishing boat. At sea, skipper Hamil Linder (Bickford) receives Bruno kindly, teaching him fishing; Bruno enlists Hamil's wayward son Carl (Nicol) to tend his slot machines. Then Carl takes an interest in Bruno's girl Connie (Winters). It all climaxes in a storm at sea. McIntier is great playing against type as a crusty seadog, and Winters, for me anyways is hard to take seriously but the film worth a look, though its not a very stylistically noir film at all. 7/10
