Gem of a Classic from 1941
20 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Brenda Marshall, (Claire Foster) is a young gal who meets up with a guy named George Foster, (Arthur Kennedy) and they only know each other for a very short time and they get married. George is always bringing home lots of money and buying all sorts of things for Claire and wants her to quite her job and go West with him. George is really a bank robber who has stolen a great deal of money and shoots a bank teller during the robbery and there is a man hunt out for him on all police bulletins in California. It is at this point in the film where it gets very interesting and you wonder just how this story will turn out. A very young looking Arthur Kennedy gave an outstanding performance along with some great veteran actors. Enjoy.
