    Taut, suspenseful tale that wastes no time getting started and moves at a brisk pace. Essentially an 80-minute showdown between two men, with a thrilling climax and terrific performances. The subject of betrayal and cowardice during wartime is handled maturely and without the usual good/evil labels of the period. 11 years 11 months ago

    Robert Ryan is my favorite mental case. He creeps me out so bad!

    That was one great noir. Hooked me from the start and kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. Not a wasted scene. Wonderful!
