The Racket (1951)

12/12/1951 (US) DramaThrillerCrime 1h 28m

The Racket boldly begins where the Senate crime committee left off!


Mobster Nick Scanlon has managed to buy several of the local government and law-enforcement officials. However, he can't seem to touch the incorruptible police captain Tom McQuigg, who refuses all attempts at bribery. Prosecuting attorney, Welch, and a police detective, Turck, are crooked and make McQuigg's job as an honest officer nearly impossible.
