One of the best noirs around ... downward-spiral noir in its purest form, even if it trades the traditional urban landscape of the American city for the mean streets of London.

Few filled the role of the sweaty anti-hero better than Richard Widmark, and he's in notable form here.

A dark, brooding noir, with Widmark riveting as a hustling promoter who sinks into the quagmire of his own ambitions.

Jules Dassin, in his direction, manages extraordinarily interesting backgrounds, realistically filmed to create a feeling both of suspense and mounting menace.

One of the true-blue noir classics. RIchard Widmark is a certifiable force of nature.

A moody piece of Wellesian chiaroscuro (shot by Max Greene, né Mutz Greenbaum) and an occasionally discomfiting underworld plunge.

Before he met Melina Mercouri and became an Artist, Jules Dassin made a number of worthwhile thrillers as a Hollywood contract director.

Inclined to go over the top, it all too clearly contains the seeds of Dassin's later -- and disastrous -- pretensions.
