    Ah Tony, I deeply regret not get over to MOMA, and haven’t a very good excuse either in view of my many trips into Manhattan all year round. I would have liked to see even a few of these films. But obviously not this one! Ha! I agreed it’s reputation is much higher than it should be. Yes, the lurid color is immediately an issue in the noir universe, and the acting is solid (especially Arlene Dahl) but nothing special and rather a conventional genre piece. Too bad when you consider it was based on Cain and shot by Alton! Yet another extraordinary review of masterful economy that will have readers hanging on every word!
