Notorious gangster (and recent prison escapee) “Killer” Mannion exploits his uncanny resemblance to mild-mannered office clerk Arthur Jones to go on a crime spree.
Une comédie fort légère qui ne figure pas parmi les réussites majeures de John Ford, mais que l'on peut voir sans déplaisir ..... www.cinefiches.com
This is a typically un-Fordian Ford film, with more in common with Frank Capra than anyone else. Robinson is excellent in a role that plays upon, and distances from, his gangster film past.

Loses momentum quickly.
Boy is this a caustic film. Serious satire.
Watched this one on TV (yeah that happens still).
Enjoyed very very much!
Robinson is amazing.
