I love any film where I get to see Robert Young playing a heel. Young plays a philandering husband in a loveless marriage. However, he gets involved with two other women and murder. The film starts with him testifying at his own murder trial pleading his innocence and the film unfolds in flashbacks. Rita Johnson plays his wife and Susan Hayward and Jane Greet play the other women. And the ending has a great kicker that I think is worth a new film stealing from.

This was a fun little flick, filled with double crosses and betrayals and I really enjoyed from start to finish, definitely something that more folks should see.

Thanks, Turner Classic Movies.

A fine mystery drama that's set in a courtroom but most of the action happens elsewhere. The only downside is its disappointing ending that just didn't fit with what's gone before.

Robert Young plays a man on trial for possibly murdering two females that he was having extramarital affairs with. It starts with him deciding to leave his wife (Rita Johnson) and engaging in relationships with one woman (Jane Greer), who is in the process of being transferred one from office to another; and an employee of his business (Rita Hayworth). Unfortunately, under his presence, tragedies occur, of which Johnson is killed in a fiery crash on a highway, with him as the driver; and Greer is killed in a fall off a cliff, at a ranch in which he was staying. Severely underrated drama that has fine performances, spicy dialogue, and several surprising twists, including a heartbreaking ending. It is said director Irving Pichel worked with Joan Harrison, an individual who often worked with Alfred Hitchcock. A wise move; it's just too bad that this film has fallen into the shadows of cinema. Hopefully you will believe that you have to watch this.

Excellent undeservedly obscure noir with an excellent dark performance from the usually genial Robert Young. Economically directed by Pichel with terrific contributions from Susan Hayward, Jane Greer and particularly Rita Johnson. Great denouncement, catch it if you can.

What a great story, Robert Young is at his best. Compelling, always interesting and a fascinating story. Good cinematography. Rita Johnson stands out in the cast.
