    Nice Robert Wise film noir. Combines WWII holocaust backstory with a thrilling 'who-dunnit' mystery. Valentina Cortese is wonderful as the young Polish girl who survives a German death camp only to face more peril in the hills of San Francisco.

    a thriller that was similar to something hitchock might've made. very well worked and directed by robert wise. the car without brakes scene was well filmed. very much enjoyed the twists at the end also. will have to keep my eyes open for more robert wise films
