Fine noir cinematography, even the daytime in certain scenes has a dark edge immune to the sunlight. Love location shooting like this, it has the authenticity a sound stage could never duplicate (the house was the director's real life home.) Kate Manx's suicide just a few years after this ...Read more

Sadly, this is not a lost masterpiece. The film takes forever to get going, has very little suspense, and is pretty dull for the most part. The one thing you're left with is the feeling that lead actor Corey Allen deserved a much bigger career, but movies like this didn't help him, despite ...Read more

One of those post-code movies, like _Night of the Hunter_. in which the resolution is more than a little bit ambiguous. Excellent cult film, that has not yet found its cult. If it ever does, I'm all in. Dark, Dark, Dark.

Sociopathic charmer anti-hero, edgy late noir photography and plot, good (not great) actors for the genre. "Jazziness" and signature noir psychopathology. The class prejudice and elitism could be applied to today.

I found this film enthralling. The lead actor is great as a morally depraved con man. No twists, no special effects, just a simple story in creepy black and white.

These two scuzballs get invited by a young pretty blond wife into her home to eat and dance with her while her husband is away? What was she thinking, that they'd just be there to play Parcheezi? Then at the end, all of a sudden she's back with hubby like nothing happened?

Bless Kanopy. I'm a brand new member (through the LA Public Library) and what a pleasure to be introduced to this never-even-heard-of noir gem starring an also never-heard-of Kate Manx. Dis this film all you want for it's rather tame presentation of its subject matter (by today's standards, ...Read more

Two creeps (portrayed by actors too old for their roles) get what they deserve. Don't waste your time.

Forgotten and probably deserves to remain forgotten. For its time it might have been edgy and even provocative but it feels like a missed opportunity. The sense of menace and sizzling sensuality never quite catches fire; some wonderful period slang and atmosphere, though, and gorgeous black ...Read more
