Most of what I wanted to say about this excellent thriller has already been said by other contributors, so I won't belabour the point.The cast is excellent, although I found Dana Andrews a bit stiff.The film is consistently thrilling through out. I would like to add that I found this film very attractive to look at with its excellent use of beautiful desert locations. These location scenes seemed to have been filmed when the desert was in full bloom, and add an attractive back drop to this gloom and doom thriller. I would love to know where and what time of year these location scenes were filmed.
