Movie Info

An unemployed drifter, Eric Stanton (Dana Andrews) wanders into a small California town and begins hanging around the local diner. While Eric falls for the lovely waitress Stella (Linda Darnell), he also begins romancing a quiet and well-to-do woman named June Mills (Alice Faye). Since Stella isn't interested in Eric unless he has money, the lovelorn guy comes up with a scheme to win her over, and it involves June. Before long, murder works its way into this passionate love triangle.

    Fabulous film noir with complex character motivations. One of director Otto Preminger's best.

    I loved this movie! Andrews and Faye and Darnell were so fantastic in the movie, and the story is exciting, suspenseful, and romantic. I highly recommend it.

    Good performances but the storyline only works if you buy into the assumption that all men are powerless under the spell of Linda Darnell. Discount that and 90% of the plot becomes illogical and disjointed.

    Doesn't quite stick to the noir playbook but a lot of this film is great - Dana Andrews is rock solid and Otto Preminger pulls some HOT camera moves. Linda Darnell is a classic bombshell who has men diving off cliffs at a single glance. Once you get by the slight noir unorthodoxy - and a couple plot shaggies - you have a very rewarding film.
