Very good noir film...reminding me of Touch of Evil. Peter Lorre and Sydney Greenstreet are excellent together in this!

Although it is great to see Peter Lorre and Sydney Greenstreet teamed up again (after their superb pairings in Casablanca and especially The Maltese Falcon), they may not be strong enough to carry a film on their own. Or perhaps, despite its cult status, this film isn't strong for other reasons. Lorre plays a mystery writer who becomes obsessed with Dimitrios, a rascal and murderer whose dead body he sees at the morgue, and his international investigations frame flashback scenes about the crimes of Dimitrios. Greenstreet (also in the present) is interested in Dimitrios for his own reasons - and needs information Lorre has to reach his objective. Duller than it should be.

There was a time before cell phones, the internet, or even network television. Information was found only through books, newspapers, radio, or face to face encounters. The latter often involved traveling to ask specific questions; the answers to which form the basis for another round of questions. Each answer may take the form of a knife-blade or a bullet, an excellent reason to cast Lorre and Greenstreet as the - well..., neither can really be considered heroes, right? In fact, not a single character of this noir flick could be considered a luminary role model. This is the epitome of its genre.

Beautiful chance for typically supporting actors to show just how amazing they were in lead roles. Great dialogue, engrossing plot.

There's all too little kindness in the world!
