Audience Reviews for Dangerous Crossing

Still slowly but surely filling in my Film Noir viewing with little thrillers like this off the To-Watch Pile. Builds a decent amount of tension, just because it leaves you doubting what you've seen yourself after no one on this ship can corroborate the young bride's story. Worth a rental.

I like mysteries - even 1953 B&W ones. Current mysteries have a bit more suspense though.
