    Widmark was so creepy in this that he sends chills down my spine. Victor Mature plays his role with such tenderness that you really start to love him. Good movie. 6 years 10 months ago

    A few things set this noir apart from the rest. The character of Nick Bianco (played with a touching humanity by Victor Mature) is a father of two little girls, and is willing to break one of the biggest "rules" among criminals to be with them. It's not often you see such a real, vulnerable man in films like these. Richard Widmark makes his extremely memorable screen debut as the totally psychotic Tommy Udo (whose favorite word is "squirt"). Even wheelchair-bound old ladies aren't safe when he's around. Finally, the presence of the ever-lovely Coleen Gray (also seen in Kubrick's "The Killing" and "Nightmare Alley") rounds out the solid cast. Recommended for those who enjoy noirs that stray from the beaten path. 9 years 1 month ago
