Assigned to Danger (1948)

Insurance investigator Dan Sullivan is trying to gather clues from a payroll heist. Someone doesn’t want Sullivan to solve the case, as witness the number of times he’s beaten black-and-blue. The film’s bizarre climax takes place at the hideout of gang boss Frankie Mantell, where Sullivan, posing as a doctor, is expected to operate on the wounded criminal! Director Boetticher is at his best in the closing reels, slowly and methodically building tension upon tension as Sullivan seeks an avenue of escape.

Director: Budd Boetticher (as Oscar Boetticher).
