SYNOPSIS

‘Ida Lupino co-wrote and stars in this brawny, booze-fueled drama about a desperate cop (Steve Cochran) straying off the straight-and-narrow, falling for a world-weary lounge singer (Lupino) and betraying his partner (Howard Duff). Don Siegel directs the character-driven script with his usual vigor, but this time his patented punch is tempered by Lupino’s more leisurely storytelling style - and the bourbon-soaked performances of a once-vital cast hurtling headlong toward has-been status.’ – American Cinematheque
