    Excellent crime drama with a lot of great chemistry and humorous dialogue thrown in. One of Ginger Rogers best films and performances. Edward G. Robinson is great as usual; Brian Keith is very very good, as well, as is Katherine Anderson; and Lorne Greene is truly menacing. A film well worth watching. Now available on DVD as part of TCM's Film Noir Classics III collection.

    I did not get to see this movie, but from Leonard Maltin's description and from the reviews of those who saw it, it seems like a very interesting movie. It is also not available on video/DVD. As such, please show this one again at the earliest opportunity. Thanks.

    I had never heard of this film before, but it was a terrific surprise. It is wonderfully written, well paced, and of course, excellently cast. Ginger Rogers was so marvelous as a tough city girl that I did not recognize her, and was shocked to see her name in the credits. What an unusual part for her--and what a triumph she made of it. Robinson is, as usual, commanding and at ease in his role; unquestionable. But my favorite was the man played by Brian Keith--the officer Vince. His character was not the typical lady's man or hardboiled, gruff winsome fellow; instead he represents one of us, torn by conflict within himself, revealing how far one can go to do what is right without seeking heroism. At the film's end, what is truly important in the subtle romance is not what one gives to the other person--but what one sacrifices.

  • Great

    I had never seen this movie before,thought it was GREAT. Would rather watch the old classic movie than what the film makers are producing today. Just love to see an E.G. Robinson film.

  • Old school acting

    • Jarrod McDonald

    This is an interesting role for Ginger Rogers at this stage of her career. The fine ensemble helps. I particularly liked Brian Keith in this film, and Edgar G. Robinson continues his usual rough and tough-guy image, on the right side of the law. I just don't think Rogers' acting meshes very well with the other two, however. She's too formal, and not natural enough for me. The script seemed a bit predictable, too, and I was surprised that it was given three stars. It might've been more interesting if she were ratting on other women in the prison where she was currently serving time (of course that would've been a different movie, entirely!). Of particular mention is a pre-Bonanza Lorne Greene playing the mob boss. That was an interesting role for him. But also, as with the others, I don't think his style of acting meshes with Rogers, either. It's like there's this old school of acting in Hollywood intersecting with some of the newer method actors from the east coast. This just could've been a better film with more complimentary performances in my opinion.

  • WOW!
