Like the title the movie missteps, but this is a classic for several reasons: John Garfield's last movie. 1st film to use the family trapped by a criminal storyline and more. Best reason to see it though is James Wong Howe's brilliant noir cinematography.

This is a pretty good little film-noir starring John Garfield which would end up being his last film as he was effectively black-listed for refusing to names names to the HUAC, and then died a year later at the young age of 39. The film looks great on DVD, it was shot by the legendary James Wong Howe who was a 2 time Oscar winner and 10 time nominee. Worth a watch for fans of the genre.

John Garfield's final screen role is a brilliant study in paranoia, with strong support from Shelley Winters. Garfield, like his co-star Serena Royle and director John Berry, was a victim of the Hollywood blacklist. Considered a predecessor to Brando, he died of a heart attack less than a year later, aged just 39.

Intense drama of a man on the run who slowly crumbles while waiting to escape from the desperate situation he has created for himself. This tense noir was the end of the line for John Garfield who because of unjust hounding by HUAC and the dasterdly Joseph McCarthy died shortly after from a heart attack brought on by the stress. He is exceptional as always supported by three other strong perfomers, Wallace Ford, Shelley Winters and fellow blacklist victim Selena Royle.

(1951) He RAn All The Way
SUSPENSE/ THRILLER/ DRAMA

If this film was known for anything, for anyone who know who John Garfield is- it would only be known as Garfield's final picture! Not much of a story which is predictable and as a result drags it's viewers to say "Hurry up already, get this done and over with?" Wanted and escaped convict played by John Garfield hides out with the insecure Shelly Winters character with of course paranoia running amok with the Garfield character with predictable results which is supposed to be metaphoric! We've seen this all done before either in real life or from other, what do I gain from watching this as opposed to seeing it on something else - nothing!

1.5 out of 4

John Garfield rates a biopic, and I want Mark Wahlberg in the lead.

Wong Howe's cinematography made the film visually more interesting given such a simple story. John Garfield and Shelley Winters characters were complex and I wish the story could have stretched longer to explore deeper with what could have happened if Nick and Peg really escaped.

decent enough noir; the first of the 'home invasion' thrillers and the last of john garfield's career. alot of people were broken by the blacklist, few as tragically as garfield, a major star and great anti-hero who refused to name names and was banned for life, dying only one year later at age 39 and today mostly forgotten

While there's nothing outstanding about this man-on-the-lam noir, it's a fine example of the genre. John Garfield (in his final performance) is terrific as the nervous, impulsive accidental cop killer, and Shelley Winters is amazing as always. Playing emotionally vulnerable characters seems to be her speciality, and she doesn't disappoint. There's a good amount of location work, which is always a plus, although most of it is in the front of the film. The rest of it is mostly confined to one set, and this turns out to be the one major drawback. Although the way that family issues play into the story is compelling, as a viewer I started to long for more forward notion. The movie really ought to be called He Hid All the Way because there's not a whole lot of running going on. However, it's a fine piece of work for noir fanatics, with some good photographic elements too.
