    Fairly uninspired noir. Really expected more from director Douglas Sirk and co writer Sam Fuller. Aside from good shadow and light cinematography by Charles Lawton and evocative location shooting of downtown L.A. in 1949 there's not much to write home about with this blah film. The characters are all on the dull/generic side and the actors who play them don't help much. Especially stiff is the femme fatale turned heroine played by Patricia Knight, and that is unusual for Sirk with his gallery of great female performances (Jane Wyman, Dorothy Malone, Agnes Moorhead, Lana Turner, etc. etc.) The story is kinda dumb, too, asking the audience to believe that a probation officer would ask his murderess client home to dinner to meet his mom and that a scumbag gangster would miraculously turn into a good guy to save said murderess from going to jail at the end. Give it a C. P.S. Sure is weird to see a Sirk film in black and white and with no swirling leaves or piano music in the background.
