Illegal Entry is a 1949 American film noir crime film directed by Frederick De Cordova and starring Howard Duff, Märta Torén and George Brent.[1] The film and its treatment of illegal entry and unlawful residence in the United States is introduced by Watson B. Miller, the commissioner of the Immigration and Naturalization Service under President Harry S. Truman.


An undercover agent (Howard Duff) attacks an illicit Mexican border immigrant smuggling operation.



Critical response

The New York Times film critic, Bosley Crowther, gave the film a mixed review, "A formidable introduction which features Attorney General Tom Clark and certain Immigration Bureau oficials who bespeak that service well does not camouflage Illegal Entry ... Howard Duff plays this hero in an acceptable rough-and-ready style and Marta Toren is attractive as the girl ... The backgrounds of southern California and Mexico are authentic enough. But the whole picture has the quality of a mechanical, oft-repeated show."[2] The film was given a favorable review in other newspapers including one in the Rushville Republican (Indiana), published on September 27, 1949[1]
