What really sets this noir a combination of Hathaway's deliberate craftsmanship and the small crackerjack ensemble led by Mature and Widmark

If the production code didn't mandate the villain's defeat by the film's end, Udo would have walked away triumphant, tossing a butt at a flat-on-his-face Bianco.

Hathaway's film noir is largely known for Richard Widmark's debut in an Oscar-nominated role of a giggling psycho who pushes old crippled ladies down the stairs.

The film is efficient enough, but it's a measure of Hathaway's limitations that it never once fulfills the paranoid delirium built into its subject.

A jumbled piece of cinematic crime fiction that's visually elegant but regularly confused about its own point of view.
