The Falls themselves are an ever-present backdrop, and as memorable (and integral to the plotting) as Mount Rushmore was in "North by Northwest."
This film noir in color benefits from Hathaway's taut direction, strong performances of Monroe as the adulterous wife and Cotten as the jealous hubby, and location shooting.
Watchable, but otherwise unremarkable.

Apesar das boas atuações de Joseph Cotten, Jean Peters e da presença marcante de Marilyn Monroe, o filme naufraga graças a um roteiro medíocre e à direção burocrática de Hathaway.
The parts without [Monroe's] luminous presence onscreen are noticeably less interesting than those parts where she was involved.
