Crime • 1947 • 1 hr 37 min
As a noir fan, this movie scratches every itch. No Hollywood ending here. Mitchum at his Mitchumest. Great heavy turn by Kirk Douglas.
One of the best noirs of all time. Everything is perfect on this movie
A beautifully shot, amazingly acted, and brilliantly directed film about past sins and regrets.
Mitchum's film, unfolds slowly and laconicly
Classic noir with great dialogue, performances, & crisp B&W cinematography. Highly rewatchable for fans of the genre.
Solid film-noir classic. Robert Mitchum is great here. A movie that could be taught in classes from film school to American Realism.
There’s a reason this was shown to me three times in film school. Textbook example of a classic Film Noir whose influence is still echoed
This is what Film Noir has always been and always will be in my mind. Absolutely perfect movie.
