    Awesome film Noir movie about russian and German spys trying to get plans for a wepon that a doctor in german was working on. Ann is a woman who desperately needs to get to Sante Fe. John is on vacation and with his car out of commission agrees to help Ann drive. John's a nice enough guy, and soon finds out that there is more to Ann than meets the eye. There are cops, CIA, FBI, switched identifies, and a plot full of twists and turns. 5 Stars 3-22-13

    Entertaining chase drama with a cold war twist. Ruth Roman gives an excellent portrait of a woman pursued, intellegent and capable with an underlying edge of hysteria since she's not completely sure of what's happening. The romantic subplot is the weakest part of the story but part of that is due to having that stolid block of wood Sterling Hayden in the lead. A stronger actor would have made this even better.
