obscure, with allure
12 February 2004 | by goblinhairedguySee all my reviews

Not listed in many reference books, this fast-moving and absorbing crime melodrama is significant for its venal, scheming femme fatale portrayed in offbeat fashion by Signe Hasso. Rather colorlessly directed by Leo McCarey's brother, it lacks the dark, fatalistic tone that would have made it a memorable noir along the lines of Blonde Ice or Decoy. Still, the weaving of the black widow's treacherous web makes it a highly watchable item, with some good sets and camera set-ups thrown in. Recommended for B-movie fans, noir completists, and misogynists.
