More About The Captive City - John Forsythe
 
 
 
Overview

One of several early-1950s films to capitalize on the Kefauver Committee's investigation of organized crime, THE CAPTIVE CITY stars John Forsythe as crusading editor Jim Austin. While Austin prepares his testimony before the Committee, the film flashes back to the events which led to this courageous act. Victor Sutherland plays mob boss Murray Sirak, who has the entire police force of Austin's hometown under his thumb. Sirak in turns takes his orders from an unseen Mister Big, who of course is "above the law"--or so it seems. Based on the experiences of TIME magazine reporter Alvin Josephy Jr. (who co-authored the script), CAPTIVE CITY contains the added fillip of a guest appearance by Senator Estes Kefauver himself.
