A little Film Noir I've always been fond of since I discovered him on a French TV channel late at night some 35 years ago. Two is the main idea here. Richard Basehart's develops muscles and loses his brain as soon as he quits his glasses and becomes Paul Sothern while the feminine element of the movie is split between the devilish blondie Audrey Totter and the angelic black haired Cyd Charisse. Strongly recommended.
