great film with some fine acting and script in forgotten film noir gem
cyd charrise in a non dancing role. she is a total babe and takes a medium size part and delivers the goods as a girl that believes in her man. the cast in this movie is superb. the plot is well written and contains some nice twists. besides excellent performances by all of the main cast the supporting staff are also perfect especially the lead detective. if you want to see cyd looking radiant and innocent, this is a great pic.
lloyd gough has a key but small part in this movie, fans of the green hornet will remember him as being on the newspaper staff for bret reed's newspaper.
audrey totter, a joliet, illinois gal is tough as nails, just like the "steel city" she hails from. does a great job in her role. she was a powerful and convincing actress.
