Edward G. Robinson,
A bank heist yields $210,000. Soon, sultry Lona McLane, girlfriend of one of the robbers, meets Paul Sheridan and has a torrid affair. When she finds out Paul's a cop, to save herself she sets out to corrupt him. He's a pushover. But it won't be easy for Paul to get his hands on the money when he's part of a complex, peeping-tom stakeout. Soon, he's in much deeper than he'd planned, amid atmospheric night scenes. Written by

When Lt. Eckstrom explains the layout of the apartment building to the detectives, he points to the apartment where the stakeout will take place, then points to a room just below it and tells the detectives to be sure to avoid contact with the other tenants. The room he points to is a bedroom in the stakeout apartment, so no tenants would be in that room. See more »
New car, mink coat, no clocks in the joint... probably the story of her life.
You just don't like women, Rick.
What keeps you single?
Maybe I like 'em too much.
I've seen all kinds since we joined the force... B-girls, hustlers, blackmailers, shoplifters, drunks. You know, I think I'd still be married if I could find a half-honest woman. Must be a few of 'em around.
Watch yourself! Those few might just be smarter!

I didn't expect this movie to be this good knowing nothing about it. Kim Novak is not the bitch that Barbara Stanwyck is, but the most beautiful actress on the movie screen and shy way about her that was truly sensuous. No matter who the leading man in her movies was, you just felt the helplessness of them being totally enthralled with this soft, sensuous, unbelievable sex goddess, for lack of another original description.
This is only the second movie I seen Fred MacMurray in (no my three sons here) besides Double Indemnity and his performance is very good here also,... just as Double Indemnity... I found myself hoping he would get away with it!
