I enjoyed this movie as I was watching it, but it didn't leave much of a memory for later. John Hodiak is great, as is William Bendix and Harry Morgan, but I thought Gene Tierney was the best, even though she looked a tad silly with blonde hair. This movie could use a remake, and I usually don't think that way. But there is a great story here and it could use a new treatment.
