    Very interesting, and in parts 'thrilling'. Saw it on late nite Movie Channel in 2020.

    Mildred Baxter (Kim Hunter) has just became a newlywed while traveling to NYC without hardly knowing anything about him except that his name is Paul and happens to be a salesman like her old childhood school chum, Fred Graham (Robert Mitchum), who eventually comes to her aid after a murder incident from Philadelphia.

    feels like a B picture suspenser directed by the master of ballyhoo.

    Thriller decorrido em Nova Iorque teria talvez a capacidade de empolgar em 1944, mas visto hoje parece ingénuo e um bocado previsível. A realização de William Castle é elegante e ver Robert Mitchum em qualquer filme é sempre um prazer.

    A bit melodramatic for my taste, but Castle's depiction of paranoid urban life for the couple on the lam is quite effective, including a fun, race-conscious interlude in a Harlem bar. It's an interesting mix of noir and wartime paranoia with romantic themes closer to a women's film. Jagger and Mitchum are set up at cross angles as examples of masculinity, with Hunter in the middle and Hamilton (Batman's Commissioner Gordon) as the voice of benevolent, investigative authority. Tiomkin's score is excellent, alternately sweeping and tentative, the plucked strings emphasizing Mitchum's anxiety. This is a real treat for Castle fans, as an interesting cross-genre effort from him with a typically outstanding use of the small budget.

    William Castle's gimmicky direction works just fine in this interesting B-film noir.
