  • Rosina Rossini's rating of the film Shadow on the Wall

    Zachary Scott is so good in this film! The plot isn't terribly interesting in its "crime of passion" noir plot, but the recognizable characters make this film memorable within the film noir genre. Dialogue started off strong, but weakened as the film progressed. As a result, I was rooting for Ann Sothern to do away with the little girl and the doctor by the end... though it was nice to see a female doctor in a noir!
