A war hero enters a crime syndicate in a film noir classic starring Dennis O’Keefe (Walk a Crooked Mile), Paul Stewart (Kiss Me Deadly), Allison Hayes (Attack of the 50 Foot Woman), and the real-life couple of singer Abbe Lane and bandleader Xavier Cugat.

War veteran and accountant Barry Amsterdam (O’Keefe) is charged with investigating Arnie Valent (Stewart), a gang boss suspected of murdering a man who tried to expose him. Ansterdam soon becomes involved in a dangerous love triangle involving both Valent’s glamorous girlfriend (Lane), and the mysterious, vengeful Joyce (Hayes).

Directed by Fred F Sears (Earth vs. the Flying Saucers), Chicago Syndicate is a torn-from-the-headlines exposé of the machinations of organised crime.
