Critics reviews

Thanks to the fame of Rififi (1955), Jules Dassin is often taken as French. But he was American-born, of Russian-Jewish immigrant parents, and before he was hounded out of the US by the Red Scare merchants he directed near on a dozen Hollywood films. Thieves’ Highway was the last of them, and one of the strongest.
