    Holden did well, but I thought his character was not written as well as it could have been. Cobb's character had much more depth, but the extra story about the boy he may be able to save in the future was fairly unnecessary, most of his character building came in the holdup story anyway. It's fairly short, so if you have a little over an hour to kill, it'd be worth a look.

    Perhaps a little excessively/obviously freudian. But definitely worth watching for the interplay between Cobb and Holden.

    originally, i thought this was the same film as he ran all night and the desperate hours (both great noir films), but this is slightly different! first, william holden and lee cobb are great and the screenplay holds up with some really nice tension and suspense. though i would have rather seen veronica lake int he nina foch as originally intended

    What's the one thing that can stop a mad killer from going psycho on you and your family? PSYCHIATRY. Too bad the psychiatry is outdated, Freudian, and completely unsuccessful in the real world.
