This lurid 1948 melodrama by Jean Negulesco has built up a considerable underground reputation.

Framed within a realistically intimate roadhouse setting, yarn reconstructs the triangle with an arrestingly psychotic twist supplied by Richard Widmark.

List first the fact that Widmark, though he stands in danger of being typed as the screen's prime psychotic, does an excellent job (complete with chilling laughter).

Mad, perhaps, but memorable too.
