As a straight action fare, I Married a Communist generates enough tension to satisfy the average customer. Despite its heavy sounding title, pic hews strictly to tried and true meller formula.

Screenplay uses the simple and slightly naive device of substituting Communist for gangsters in a typical underworld yarn.

Pic is so wary of introducing any political gab that at one point when Commie trade union tactics are touched upon, the soundtrack is dropped.

Robert Ryan plays an ex-comrade who turns up in San Francisco as vice-prexy of a shipping company and bigtime labor relations expert. In the midst of waterfront union negotiations, the Commie chieftain (Thomas Gomez) enters to remind Ryan that he can’t quit the mob and had better follow the Party’s directive to stir up labor trouble.
