In short, there is nothing in this picture except a whopping shortcut towards the end -- and a few false parochialisms -- to keep it from banging the bell.

Combustible Celluloid

James Stewart gives a hard-edged performance as a jaded newspaper reporter who turns a classified ad into the story of the century.

Movie Metropolis

The movie takes its time, but it finally gets into true noir territory by the last half hour, where dark streets, dark alleys, dark staircases, and dark rooms prevail.

Kansas City Kansan

Docu-style story of a wrong man accused is interestingly dated.

Reeling Reviews

A dark look into guilt and innocence with reporter Jimmy Stewart digging into an old murder story.

None of [Jimmy Stewart's] usual charm is present.

Noel Murray
Nashville Scene

The true measure of a star is his ability to transform ordinary material into movie magic. James Stewart's presence in this routine crime-drama gives a plain film a complex core.
