Goofs

When Bill gets stuck in the slush trying to turn his car around to follow Stephen Morley and Helen Ferguson whom he has passed on the road, the rear wheels spin without traction. The front tires can be seen to have chains installed. If they had been installed on the rear drive tires, he wouldn't have had a problem and the scene wouldn't have had as much tension. See more »

Quotes

Bill Harkness: [returns to car after dumping a dead body onto a moving train] He stayed on, caught on the catwalk or whatever it is, but his hat and... came off.
Helen Ferguson: Don't.

Barbara Stanwyck, John Lund - What more could you want
11 November 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I love this film. I first saw it when I was 10 and always remembered the story and feel of it. This is wonderful noir, with the kind of plot that keeps one enthralled until the final frame.

All the performers deliver: Stanwyck moves from a tragic character with little hope, through loss, the turmoil of deceit to happiness. This was a strong performance for her; John Lund perfectly portrays a man in conflict. Jane Cowl and Catherine Craig are almost a perfect sparing pair as the mother and the maid, their sarcasm to each other provides the humour scattered through the film.

The atmosphere and mood of the latter part of this film is perfectly captured in black and white. It makes you realize the role shooting a film in black and white played in this genre.

If you have not seen this film, do yourself a favour AND SEE IT.
