  • Superb Film

    Fast taut noir film set in the sweaty dim and smoky aftermath of war. The dialogue is brilliant, clipped and elliptical, truncated, as it catches the cadence of real American speech and shades into hues of guilt and rage and comic delusion. There are scenes that have lived with me for decades and the mood overall is summed up best by the worldly Mitchum when he says, "Tonight the snakes are loose." The bigotry angle is played with such quiet restraint and finesse that it is doubly effective. No lectures. As close to Italian neo-Realism as Hollywood gets and with the three Roberts all at their best.

    Like "Gentlemen's Agreement," this tense thriller deals with anti-Semitism with class. Of the three Robert's that star in the film, only Ryan got an Oscar-nomination as an insane bully, Grahame was also nominated for get brief work. Dmytryk helmed the film magnificently on it's shoe-string budget, making it the first B-movie nominated for Best Picture. A film that deserves equal praise as "Gentleman's Agreement" for unearthing the now-dated realities of anti-Semitism. I give it a 4.5/5.

  • This is a Pretty Good Movie

    It kept me watching. Having Robert Mitchum in it helped. I would recommend it if you have nothing else much to do.

  • Good

    Good, dark and dreary. Grahame and Ryan shine
