This is a fun nasty little movie. Lizabeth Scott is so evil and vicious in this that even the harden criminals are taken aback. The ending of this is pretty satisfying. This is well worth a watch, highly entertaining, and recommended.

A fantastic brassy noir headlined by a ballsy performance from Scott, as an apparently 'normal' woman who finds seemingly unlimited (and terrifying) reserves of nerve as she negotiates her way through a low-level crime syndicate. While it works well on its own terms, it's also a fascinating inversion of noir tropes, seeing all events through femme fatale Scott's eyes, especially as she deals with schlub Duryea, who is also excellent in what would traditionally (in the 40s) be a leading role.

This is a great film noir. I had never heard of this film before. It surprised me how good of a movie it turned out to be. It has some good twists and turns.

The film starts off with a couple getting a bag of money randomly thrown into their back seat, and almost immediately the bickering begins as to whether they should turn it in or keep it. I don't normally like these kinds of plots with unreasonable people making stupid decisions but this film has an interesting take on the concept. Despite a few too many coincidences the plot is well constructed and the actors do a good job making their characters likable or hateable, as the case may be.

Jut a hair overlong, but Duryea is always a joy to watch, and Scott is magnificent.

Maybe not the most sophisticated story (some of the plot details are far too convenient) but for a noir fan, this is the stuff. Lizabeth Scott is amazing as the femme fatale, conniving and ruthless, using her sexuality as a weapon when she needs to, and with just a glimmer of vulnerability. This is the best I've ever seen Duryea, a character with more depth than you'd at first suspect. The interactions between them are dynamite, and features some crisp dialogue. An edgy, fun, underrated classic.

Entertaining in all the ways a noir should be, but the 100 minute runtime felt like 30 minutes too many. DeFore's performance may have had something to do with it.
