Movie Info

Bobo (Jean Gabin), a lonely longshoreman with a nasty drinking problem, awakes after a rough bender with no memory of the night before and an unsettling suspicion that he has killed someone. Deeply rattled, he buries himself in work on a remote barge and finds a new distraction after rescuing a suicidal waitress (Ida Lupino) from the cruel waters. Soon love blossoms between this melancholy pair, but Tiny (Thomas Mitchell), Bobo's jealous pal, has dark plans to regain Bobo's full attention.

  • Aug 24, 2015
    Feeling like a little slice of real life, a gypsy dockworker saves a suicidal prostitute, and then they save each other. There's some other pepper thrown in for spice but the game try for a cinema verite feel of the thing enthralls till the end for the most part. Gabin has most of the load thrown on him and he pretty much carries the thing, growling throughout, even when he smiles. Tommy Mitchell and Claude Rains deliver with their usual competent panache . Ida Lupino does relieved-not-to-kill-herself pretty good, too.

    The only Film Noir movie I ever actually liked

    An engrossing little slice of dockside drama that is (unfortunately) more of a reflection of the Hayes Code than it is of the original source material.

    Noirish wharf side drama with an excellent cast. Beautiful mood photography.
