A thrilling revenge film noir about truckers. I loved it.

Good old fashioned drama that gets better as it goes along. Well directed and acted but similar to the superior They Drive by Night.

Excellent pink noir, save the tacky tacked- on ending. "Aren't women wonderful?"

this is a good b-picture about truckers, directed by jules dassin and written by a.i. bezzerides, who also wrote they drive by night and kiss me deadly. i'm not a big fan of richard conte but he does alright here, valentina cortese is great as the hard bitten femme who makes him a mark and lee j. cobb has a blast as the heavy. interference from producer darryl zanuck may have weakened this picture but it's still worth a watch for noir fans. dassin's last film before the blacklist and his self-imposed exile from hollywood
