Ulmer's third masterpiece, after The Black Cat (1934) and Detour (1945); it's one of his few films that overcame its wretched budget.

Ulmer (Murnau's one time art director and assistant) is the most subterranean of all directors, and here turns out a triumph of mind, eye and talent.

Interessante verso da histria de Barba-Azul, desta vez com um Carradine atipicamente contido e, conseqentemente, muito eficaz.
