This is good old-fashioned film noir. My video player allows me to switch it to black and white, which made a huge difference. Mitchum is always good in these type of roles. Ingrid Thulin plays the love interest. Of course it cannot match her amazing roles in Ingmar Bergman films, or Visconti's 'The Damned'. Frederic O'Brady adds a nice light comic touch as Mr. Spring, with just a slight hint of menace.
Unusual pairing of Mitchum and Ingrid Thulin (with her name grossly misspelled in the credits). An interesting role for Genevieve Page as well. This taut film deserved more attention. The opening heart attack sequence lacked credibility.
