Will people learn to stop comparing.....these movies were made 6 years apart and set out its goal of entertaining us to the hilt. Rita Hayworth alone is enough to watch it all the way....and the black and white cinematography is excellent. Yes the storyline is thin but it still is intriguing and well done. What a good job also done by the supporting actors...even Juanit Moores role turned out to be very important. You think i left out Glenn Ford....no way...some say it is wooden acting....no way. Ford could act without making physical gestures....just look at the expressions on his face. He is simply awesome. OH and by the way the ending is fine for me and i am really happy to own this very entertaining DVD
