The Tattered Dress

A dark tale about Nick Hoak, a corrupt sheriff in a small Nevada town whose principal concerns are the maintenance and upkeep of all illegal activity. A lawyer and his lascivious wife stumble into Hoak's territory, and conflict ensues. One of the seedier late noirs, with a tawdry quality that transcended its big studio trappings.
