Synopsis: John Muller (Paul Henried), a career criminal on the run after a botched casino robbery, finds the ultimate hideout by taking on another man's identity. Produced by Henried and directed by low budget genius Steve Sekely (Blonge Savage, Revenge of the Zombies) the movie's fine cast includes Joan Bennett, Eduard Franz, and a very young Jack Webb. Noted cinematographer John Alton shoots in the same shimmering style that he brought to such films as He Walked By Night and The Big Combo, giving Hollow Triumph enough stark atmosphere to match any of the great noir films.
