one of Mayo's last pictures
13 May 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

If you can accept Raft's pitch to Bennett at the beginning of the movie, this is a pretty decent flic. Raft and Bennett eventually develop chemistry, and Lloyd Nolan is superbly understated as the rat. Pidgeon is not quite believable as the guy who almost gets the girl, and then finds a way to be there when Raft is no longer in the picture. It may not excatly be noir, but it is pretty good.
