    A weird little studio film about a guy from the country who commits a crime of passion and has to decide whether to run or not, whether to trust social justice or not. All of the acting holds up, but especially that from often overlooked Allyn Joslyn, Rex Ingram and Harry Morgan. This is my introduction to Frank Borzage and, while many character decisions are curious, there's more to this than meets the eye, and this bodes well for the rest of his canon.

    Would have been more aptly titled Mood Rise this noirish drama is all brooding dark places and melancholy thoughts. A first rate cast convey the proper emotions, Gail Russell's liquid haunted eyes are particularly used to good effect but Dane Clark's main character's tortured actions make him frequently hard to root for. The cinematography is wonderfully evocative perhaps one of the best shot noir films out there. The opening scene is great in setting the tone for the rest of the film.

    starts off poorly and gets better as it goes along. rather than a thriller it's more of a romance
