It was the role of a lifetime, for any actor, but Colman got it, and he nailed it. He won an Oscar and a Golden Globe, and he deserved them.

Colman faz um belo trabalho como o perturbado ator que falha em separar realidade da ficção, mas Cukor e seus roteiristas se perde nos aspectos da produção que devem ao noir, tornando-a frágil e artificial.

Subtle, well-directed drama.
