    This movie should have a poster!!! A wonderfully atmospheric noire film-the beauty of black and white cinematography is breathtaking and makes for great atmosphere. Why is this film so unknown? Highly recommend it.I watched it last night and can't wait to see it again. <div style="width:85px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com/photos/11983060"><img src="http://content6.flixster.com/photo/11/98/30/11983060_gal.jpg" border="0"/></a><div style="text-align:center;font-size:10px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com">Flixster</a> - Share Movies</div></div>

    Ida Lupino's self professed favorite of her films is a little known but wonderfully atmospheric drama with Ida, Elsa and Edith all terrifically balmy in their own ways.
