Some Steinbeck type characters surround Ingrid in her first movie.
What we have here is a mildly amusing crime comedy involving some booze hounds that may remind you of Steinbeck's denizens of TORTILLA FLAT. There is also a suspicious looking young man hanging around hotel maid Elsa (Ingrid Bergman), a blind man tapping his way around the Old Town, some belligerent cops, and a widow looking for a new husband. The old town has been plagued with a number of robberies lately, and Elsa thinks her new young man may be involved. See if you can figure it out, but don't take anything at face value!
Actually, this is a fairly routine little B pic, but it surely has one good thing going for it. That's Ingrid in her first film, and looking like she was born for the business. Some cavilling critics have said she was too plump, but to my discerning eye she was just right.
