Burgess Meredith gives a solid performance, perhaps, even memorable (as he KNOWS the difference between acting for a camera and acting for an audience) while Margo (mother of actor Edward Albert) appears to be caught in the middle although this may be the directors' fault.
Overall, this is a well-done film especially the cinematography (J. Peverell Marley, according to IMDB is one of only 5 cinematographers to have a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame - although after reviewing a listing of his other films none stand out as "significant") and production design.
The nearly unrelenting rain reinforces this dismal existence of the denizens of poverty.
The FULL CAST listing on IMDB shows Lucille Ball as "a girl (uncredited)".
There is suspense and even surprise as the drama unfolds and, in my opinion, is definitely worth repeated viewings.
Overall, the film transfer from Alpha-Video (Gotham) is watchable, although the sound is a bit muddy.
Overall Quality of DVD: **1/2 /**** Sound: ** /**** Plot: ***/**** Acting: ***/**** Cinematography: ***1/2 /**** Direction: ***/****
