...a fairly typical film-noir premise that's employed to watchable yet entirely unmemorable effect by Robert Wise...
Competent if slightly too tame for a supposedly sleazy story.
The usually meek Robert Wise trades his chameleonic tastefulness for full-on, jazzy misanthropy in this nasty melodrama.
Hard to watch, but effective and alluring nonetheless.
A revolting B film noir...
Another good film noir, with a very interesting story of murder and romance. Good acting, good story, it's good.
Finally, a noir film where the title actually makes sense! Classic psychopath meets girl love story. If you can find it on DVD be sure to check out the commentary from author and noir expert Eddie Muller. Muller's insight into the character and personality of Lawrence Tierney is priceless.
It wasn't so long ago that I couldn't even tell you who Robert Wise was. Now I find myself, like a sponge, wanting to soak up every film he ever directed. If I come across one I dislike I'll let you know.
two ambitious psychopaths hook up and all hell breaks loose. claire trevor is awesome as the soulless manipulator who destroys everyone around her to be near laurence tierney's brutal thug
Lawrence Tierney is superb as the overly-confident pit bull alpha dog sociopath who draws the same rotten qualities out of Claire Trevor who gives an equally jarring performance. Robert Wise's direction is also great as he directs one of the most grisly murders during the golden age of Hollywood. Slezak is great as the private dick and Esther Howard is nothing short of grotesque as his alcoholic client.
