This 1992 remake of the original 1945 movie is one of the few remakes that I have seen that is in most respects a perfect match with the original. It uses the same script, nearly line for line. Most of the camera shots are the same. Some scenes or additional dialogue has been added that probably was in the original script, but not in the original movie from 1945. This movie was made by the son of the actor that had the lead role in the original movie. This movie is in color, but keeps with the "film noir" darkness of the original black and white movie. The acting is, to put it bluntly, terrible. My guess would be that most of it was done in a single take. Other than the acting, the movie is fairly good.
