Summary
World-weary and living hand to mouth, small-time gunrunner Eddie 'Fingers' Coyle (Mitchum) works on the sidelines of the seedy Boston underworld. But when he finds himself facing a second stretch of hard time, he's forced to weigh loyalty to his criminal colleagues against snitching to stay free
