SYNOPSIS

‘Ida Lupino doesn’t appear onscreen until half-way through director Nicholas Ray’s jolting, divergent noir, but right from her ethereal entrance she casts an essential spell over the whole project.  Robert Ryan plays a violent city cop exiled upstate to assist with a murder investigation.  On the hunt in the wintry, mountain landscape, he comes across the remote home of a blind woman (Lupino) and what begins as ferocious thriller becomes an almost mystical meditation on loneliness and redemption.’ – UCLA Film & Television Archive
