Good noir!! Even appearing only about 10 minutes in the movie, it´s impossible not to realize Marilyn Monroe is on the screen!! She simply shines!!!
I read your comment before I watched this movie, and still I didn't realize Marilyn Monroe was in this till I came back here. She grew up fast.
Anyways, really good movie!
Decent Noir, I'd say. The pace of the film is a bit weighty though, many times it starts to drag on and interest starts to wane. More of a fan of Sunset Boulevard and The Third Man kind of Noir myself, but this isn't bad.
