    I love film noir movies and I watched this one thinking it was film noir. It has some film noir qualities but it is a very hard movie to catagorize. It is very melodramatic and cheesy BUT I STILL LOVED this movie. I thought it was filmed beautifully and felt I was transported to the forties while watching. The basic plot is a mobster falls in love with his kidnap victim and vice versa but there is so much more to the story than that. This is a movie you will either love or hate no in between here. If you can get past the bad accents and some cheesy dialogue and not be to judgemental while watching it I think you will be very entertained which is what watching movies is truly all about.

  • weird pic -- who let this one get by?

    Weren't the production codes in effect when this was made? it really IS a weird movie. References to extramarital sex and other suggestive comments, one of the women sings a song about abducting and raping women --- concluding with the advice that it's better to kill them so they're no trouble. Who the hell let this into the theaters? i feel like it was made by a pervert or maniac --- maybe both. The female lead seems to be a total unknown. i'm guessing the director "owed" her a favor, because she's no movie star. A very ordinary looking lady, and FAT..... i ask again "who let her in." i was so slackjawed from seeing this thing that i had to go look it up right away.

    Patricia Hearst looks like the female lead, which is ironic because Ms. Hearst's kidnapping ordeal resembles the movie's plot. In both stories, the heiress is kidnapped, then [allegedly and falsely, in Ms. Hearst's case] falls in love with her violent captor. Jack LaRue was a pretty good ersatz Humphrey Bogart, too. Regarding the original book and play, graphic violence against women is not entertainment, except for the sordid few.

    This 1948 British creation caused a huge outcry upon its release due to its cold-blooded brutality and sexuality. The uproar merited a four-page article in LIFE magazine, titled, "London Can't Take It." Once the viewer gets used to the English actors attempting American accents (often with hilarious results) and misguided attempts at American gangster dialog ("You croaked him!") it's actually quite a lively-paced and intriguing film. Cinematography is noirish and excellent. It has been beutifully restored and deserves a new audience.
