As George Raft and Signe Hasso begin walking through the shadows toward and onto the covered bridge, one of the first shadows is the shadow outline of the cameraman on the lift basket as he films from above. See more »
This should have been rated higher since it had several people who usually keep your attention: George Raft, Claire Trevor, Signe Hasso and Hoagie Carmichael.
The story moved along pretty well but had an unsatisfying ending. Overall, it was simply an unmemorable story and film. Too bad, because Raft usually adds an edge to almost every film he's in: a true, convincing tough guy. In this movie, the plot revolves around him trying to find his father's killer.
It's worth a look, but I wouldn't go out of my way to find this movie or buy it sight unseen. You're not missing anything if you don't find it.
