Boyer does a wonderful job of making you hate him: he's truly one of the slimiest and most unpleasant of film noir villains. Brilliant performances and beautiful art direction and costumes, even if aspects of the plot stretch credulity.
Maybe this and the even better Double Indemnity split the Best Picture vote at the Oscars that year to allow Going my Way to win.
Definitely did a double take when I realized Angela Lansbury was playing the trollop.
It's shame that this marvellous flick dropped from Horror List!
