In an attempt to re-create the murder-and-mayhem gangster films of the 1930s and 1940s, the producers called upon several veterans including Cook (Wilmer in THE MALTESE FALCON), Jaeckel (who never ages), Windsor (THE KILLING), Carey and several others. Duvall is a crook who has just been

freed from a long prison stretch and comes home to learn that his brother was killed by mobsters. His girl friend, Black, tells him that she has been coerced into setting him up by gangster Carey. Duvall, his late brother, and his pal (Baker) made the mistake of knocking over a bank that was run

by the mob, and now they are to pay with their lives. Baker and Duvall reunite and raid the mob's gambling operations in retaliation. dens. Mob boss Ryan (in the penultimate film of his 81-movie career) tells Carey that they must be stopped, or Carey will get concrete overshoes. Carey and his

goons ambush Baker, Duvall, and Black on a lonely road. In the gunplay, Black is killed, as are Carey and his thugs. Duvall and Baker now go after Ryan, get into his heavily guarded house and plant an explosive device. Baker is wounded, but both men gleefully escape the blast as the cops and the

fire department arrive. As a concession to the FCC, the TV version of the film has them trapped in the burning building. Sports fans will recognize tennis player Trabert, boxer Moore, and footballer Eller. Jazz buffs will enjoy Anita O'Day, and knowledgeable show-business insiders will note

columnists James Bacon and Army Archerd in tiny bits. THE OUTFIT is just another crime movie without much to recommend it other than a continuous stream of blood.
