my favorite Barbara Stanwyck movie, 28 July 2013
Author: maurydaly from United States

In addition to outstanding performances by the entire cast, this film has fantastic atmosphere. The sets, and the lighting, are marvelous. The bar set, and the dingy apartment, seem totally real. Lloyd Nolan, and Stanley Ridges, give standout performances as gangsters. Joel McCrea is an ideal Dr. Kildaire, honest and earnest. Miss Barbara Stanwyck gives another perfect performance. There is a stunning close-up of her, in which she is reacting to another character. It is a testament to her skill as a screen actress, that she can so expertly convey such emotion thru her eyes. It really is true that she never gave a bad performance! This is one of those old movies that gets me all choked up at the end. The story, and how it is played, makes one care about the characters. It's emotionally involving.
