    Decent Nazis in South America pic. Not as good as "Notorious," of course, but still worth one's time. Dick Powell is properly cynical and intense as a WW2 airman hunting down his French resistance wife's killer and Walter Slezak is good, as always, in the Sydney Greenstreet/Peter Lorre role. There's also a well done if extremely violent ending. Debits would include the usual anonymous direction from Edward Dmytryk, which renders Buenos Aires into standard studio back lot Spanish, a screenplay by John Paxton that can get awfully darn talky and preachy, a rather bland femme fatale turn by Nina Vale, an equally tepid job by Micheline Cheirel as the good gal, and an over the top performance by Luther Adler as the chief villain that does not justify the Orson Welles treatment it gets (i.e. a special credit at the end and keeping him in the shadows until the last scene.) Give it a B minus.

    Dick Powell's really good in this one. The plot is thick and the action is good. The atmosphere (the visuals) are really moody. This is great stuff! I can't believe thisfilm is not available on DVD! If not for TCM I doubt I would've ever seen it. PLEASE RELEASE THIS ONE!
