Lewis R Foster directing and co-writing it.

Dorothy Lamour and Dan Duryea

and very handsome (and for once, rather sentimental) Sterling Hayden as the insurance guy, a duet of cops lead by Art Smith, Harold Vermilyea as the phony psychiatrist, Alan Napier as the decaying English writer, and for his sexy wife,

Irene Hervey (with too short screen time to my taste).

Crime story made film noir, a bit clumsy, a tad talkative, but very pleasant all in all. Is it me or has this film fallen into oblivion?

Un film noir de facture assez hétéroclite, mais tout à fait plaisant à suivre. Sterling Hayden est très beau mais assez maladroit dans son jeu — et son rôle n'est pas très bien écrit — et c'est finalement, plus encore que Dorothy Lamour, Dan Duryea qui ramasse la mise. Il fait un méchant parfaitement abject.
