(de) wrote: This is a gritty urban drama with a lot of sympathy for the characters who are seemingly always stuck in a rut.
(de) wrote: We loved this little b-noir. Intentional mixes well with unintentional humor and shows some heart amidst the always mysterious cinematography of John Alton. Very clever story-telling set-up, wonderfully sculpted black and white photography, creaky acting with a very fine and fun performance from Turhan Bey who reminded us of Orson Welles. In fact film seemed as though it may have been written with Welles in mind. Makes a great double bill with Nightmare Alley, which also stars Cathy O'Donnell and explores similar themes. Always surprising to see the degree of thematic focus in these noir films. With cinematic restrictions in full force part of the interest turned to the factual detailing of the landscape in an effort to avoid sensuality. The extreme result being the procedural documentary-style noirs, but on the other end we had the news-story inspired tales and melodramas, as this one might be. Headline stories. Great stuff, lovely plot turns, and classic moody atmosphere.
