    Probably the only good spy film of that anticommunist-crazy era.

    Decent film noir with a great NYC vibe. The three stars - Widmark, Peters and Ritter - all giving great hardball performances as ably directed by Fuller.

    A great 50s noir with not -so-bad petty criminals getting mixed up with top level espionage, an interesting mix that brings Thelma Ritter one of her greatest performances and one of her many Academy Award nominations. She shines here!

    Good yarn, albeit very convoluted. Widmark very good. Sad about Mo.

    One of the best film noirs ever made, still not approaching the best in most other movie genres.

    1001 movies to see before you die. I really enjoyed this film noir. It should be remade.
