half-noir, half-soap
6 February 2004 | by goblinhairedguySee all my reviews

The first 45 minutes of this Warners programmer is an impressive, surprisingly frank and cynical noir, as an ex-con's attempts to readjust to a bewildering outside world just lead him into more hot water. Ruth Roman is particularly effective (and affecting) as a sassy, worldly-wise platinum-blonde dance hall girl. Once the two of them take it on the lam and she reverts to her natural hair colour, the movie descends into sentimental clichéd melodrama, with Steve Cochran as the protagonist showing off his pecs at every turn, and Roman cloyingly playing at the nurturing wife with the terrible secret -- there are more clinches than in a latter day Muhammad Ali fight. To his credit, director Felix Feist does like to emphasize the key points visually, and the first glimpse of Roman in her tight outfit at the seedy clip joint is striking. But unfortunately, it all amounts to another one of those paint-by-numbers working class Warner Brothers jobs instead of the tour-de-force it starts out to be.
