Yes, a "B" Film Noir at best. There was a viable storyline with classic elements of the genre that were just not well executed. The characters, except for the father, were pretty sketchy. Its backstory, including the villain's twisted plot to seek revenge on a child, left a lot to be desired.

This is a “B” film noir, with the second half being a lot better than the first half. I really liked the part where the hardened ex-convict was brought back to life by his realization that he could feel good about being decent to his enemy’s little daughter. The suspense in the last half may have redeemed the film, just as Mark Stevens, playing, Vic, the ex-convict, may end up being redeemed for his vengeful feelings. "B" actor, Skip Homeier, played a scary, psychotic menace just like Richard Widmark in Kiss of Death, but Homeier never made it out of "B" movies.
