Otto Preminger directs Robert Mitchum, Jean Simmons and Mona Freeman in this film noir based on the true story of a rich girl who leads a restless driver into a murderous plot.
Starts strong but then makes the tragic mistake of moving Mitchum and Simmons into the background for the third act courtroom showdown. Still, the final reel has a shock in store for you… and Preminger ensures there is a constant creepiness to even the most arbitrary moments. At its very best though when it is two sexy stars just hanging out together.
