Wow, Bogart and Stanwyck, two of noir's biggest icons in the same movie! This can't fail to thrill....You'd think. Think again.Hard to believe anybody thought this overcooked potboiler was a good vehicle for two of Hollywood's biggest stars. No wonder they kept it on the shelf for two years. None of the story makes much sense, and you keep waiting for a surprising twist, but it never comes. Sort of Bluebeard meets Dorian Gray, with some Gaslight touches thrown in. If only they'd given it the full Gothic treatment it sort of might have worked. As a suburban murder drama it doesn't cut the mustard. Predictable from start to the ludicrous finish, in which Bogart goes way over the top. And Stanwyck as a whimpering housewife? Dear oh dear.Avoid;There are better ways to waste your time.
