Wow--what a clunker. Dan Duryea is ever dependable, but the story is ill-served by non-existent pacing, a leading lady whose acting chops are limited, and where's the famed noir cinematography? Tough going; best not to go there at all.

Another great film noir. Watched this over 30 years ago and still holds as fresh as then
