A thrilling, absorbing and original example of the genre; it's also beautifully shot, pure escapist entertainment.

The materials of a B-grade crime potboiler are redeemed by Waldo Lydecker, walking through every scene as if afraid to step in something.

It's one of the smartest of all noirs, and thus among the most enticingly savage and dangerous.

The dialogue is stinging and the performances to be savoured in a haunting study of romantic obsession that deserves its return to the big screen.

This kooky film noir is so beautifully directed by Otto Preminger that all its protruding elements seem to slide delicately and accurately into place.

Gene Tierney makes an appealing figure as the art executive and Vincent Price is convincing as a weak-willed ne'er-do-well.

A classic thriller/whodunit of the 1940s. Unfortunately, it remains solidly in the past.
| Original Score: 3.5/5

Did Hollywood ever produce a more seductive mystery or a creepier romance? I wouldn't change a line, a frame, or a performance in this film.
