Swarthout sings not a single note in the tense little thriller Ambush. After

Hartman (Swarthout), the sister of one of the crooks. Hoping to keep her

brother and herself alive, Jane is obliged to coerce an honest truck

escape. Ambush is distinguished by the bravura performance of Ernest

Truex, usually cast in milquetoast roles, as the brilliant but deadly

"brains" of the outlaw gang.
