I cringed when I watched this movie recently on TCM.
Fred MacMurray, Barbara Stanwyck and Ward Bond were all fine actors, but in this turkey and with the scripts they had to work with it was downright embarrassing to see their acting performances.
The movie started off promising, but within about 15 minutes it quickly deteriorated into a mishmash of puzzling dialogue between the actors and plot twists that didn't make any sense. I couldn't really understand the relationship between MacMurray and his brother, who he just kind of left out there in left field during the bank robbery.
Ward Bond played an ingratiating role as a baddie. He just looked uncomfortable during his scenes.
Overall a terrible waste of some fine actors talents.
