Steve Thompson returns home after a few years of knocking around the country following his divorce from good-time girl Anna. Getting his old job back driving an armored car, and not even convincing himself that he’s making a new start, he also wants his old wife back.

I think Siodmak may be my favorite classic director. Criss Cross is fantastic. Another shot / reverse shot sequence punctuated by music here, like in the jam session sequence in the Phantom Lady. The ending, with the sea in the background, behind the window, is simply sublime.
