Otto Preminger directs Gene Tierney, Dana Andrews and Vincent Price in this early noir where a detective falls for the mysterious, beautiful girl whose murder he is investigating.
A bit too stagey and talky – the vibe is intriguing but the execution ages this. Runs out of pep when the flashbacks dry up. Tierney looks swell, decent support.
