The biggest fault of Jagged Edge is that whatever suspense it manages to generate in its climactic scenes is achieved artificially, through tricky editing and manipulative ''danger'' music.

A well-crafted, hardboiled mystery.

The wholesome cast completely obliterates the unstated perversities that have been this genre's reason for being.

These days it is almost unheard of for a movie to keep you guessing until the last frame, but this one does, partly because Marquand plays it so beautifully straight.

The screenplay, by Joe Eszterhas, does what it can to throw up a smokescreen, but the audience will probably be well ahead of the story's final resolution.

Like many entries into the genre, Jagged Edge works best when it's watched with a minimum of analysis.
