Harry Fabian is a great character, whose last name speaks to his campaign of misdirection, deception, & inevitable retreat. Striving for "ease & plenty," Fabian possesses a manic energy that propels him through every confrontation & problem; his solution is inevitably some form of betrayal or deceit. His appetite for status ill fits with his capriciousness; there couldn't be a greater contrast with the smooth operators who yield real power, who regard their ill-gotten gains as a prerogative.

Widmark is fantastic and the supporting cast are strong (though Tierney barely gets a chance to shine), and the story moves at a good pace, chronicling the downfall of a lowly hustler who overplays his own hand in trying to outsmart his enemies. There are a few nice twists and turns to this noir, but the ending feels a little abrupt and unbelievable despite its effective lack of sentimentality.

Richard Widmark is good here as the ever-scheming hustler, but as often it seems with very highly regarded noirs, I wasn't blown away/or super impressed. The story is ok, but personally I've seen grimmer noirs. The frenzied ending is good, but not the darkest I've seen.

A small time hustler always after a big score. He takes every opportunity and squeezes every angle. His employer and partner, fearful of losing his wife, sets him up to protect his relationship with his wife. His gamble goes wrong and suddenly he's on the run for his life from a mobster wanting revenge. In almost every scene Richard Widmark is desperate in some way. Gene Tierny is fabulous as his wife. The music is dated and frequently annoying. But, interesting to the end.

Relentlessly grim, beautifully shot, at times frantic (and downright thrilling) but not without moments of melancholy, with a terrific cast of characters not least of which is the main character Harry Fabian who will cheat over anyone and everyone to make it big or just to save his own behind. Watching his exploits never ceases to be gripping as he desperately struggles to stay one step ahead of failure.

Some of the shots and camera movements were really fantastic, backed up by some nice lighting. The film felt fairly dark and I really liked the view of London's seedy underbelly it presented. It had some fun and varied characters too.

Fantastic noir. Shot and edited so tightly, it moves along in an exhilarating fashion. Richard Widmark is fantastic, playing a manic conniving asshole and still making him someone you could sympathize with. Totally a role that plays to his strength. The smaller parts are good, but Gene Tierney is given nothing to do and practically becomes a non-presence.

A thoroughly tense and exhilarating noir, that transformed London into a cruel fatalistic theatre of thwarted ambitions. The lighting and photography was marvellous, but I'd like to offer comment on the fight scene that stands out as one of the most compelling I've ever seen.
