A good Mitchum flick!
5 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Another viewer wrote that this was a poor movie.I disagree. I saw this on the late show years ago and then hunted down a rinky-dink video release of it. I have heard viewers comment that Mitchum didn't put much effort into his performance, but I think they're missing the direction he was going in. His character is the biggest burn-out, the biggest failure of a person I have ever seen in a movie.Bob's P.I. character has just plain given up on life and is completely numb. My favorite line in the movie is when Angie Dickenson is throwing herself at him,badgering him,and trying to get some kind of a rise out of him and he says "Lady, I don't FEEL anything". Sure the storyline and mystery element is kind of basic and nothing special, but for me the flick showcases a really interesting character study of the noir anti-hero. Mitchum was fantastic at these kinds of roles.Watch it again.
