Trivia

This film was produced by Ripley-Monter Productions, with the intended release by Producer's Releasing Corporation (which was not the production company nor the 'producer',) but it was bought by United Artists, who was unable to meet their promise of releasing a specified number of films for the 1943-44 production season. In the same year, United Artists purchased many films from other companies, including eight or more from Paramount. See more »

First film I ever hated, but somehow still haunts me
16 August 2003 | by (Flemington, NJ) – See all my reviews

As a teenager I rarely saw a movie I didn't like, but this was the first one I actually hated. I saw it in 1944 at a naval base in Newfoundland after months of isolation in the North Atlantic, so what few critical facilities I had were numbed and I was ready to enjoy any junk Hollywood threw my way. But this... I walked out of the theater actually angry!

So how come it still sticks in my memory? Nothing could be that memorably bad. I suspect from reading other reviews that it had many haunting, persistent film-noir images unlike anything the major studios were grinding out then.

If it ever shows up on Turner Classic Movies I'll certainly watch it with an eager, open mind.
