Just wanted to take a moment and offer a few thoughts on this fairly rare noir from Allied Artists Pictures which has what must be one of the most amazing cast of any noir that comes to mind.

 

The movie stars Belita and Barry Sullivan, who had worked together just one year earlier in Suspense; there's also Akim Tamiroff as a drugstore proprietor, Harry Morgan as a very romantically-minded soda worker, John Ireland as a ne'er-do-well, Elisha Cook Jr., as a (what else?) thug, Charles McGraw, Fifi D'Orsay, and even a small appearance by Shelley Winters, in the first of many noirs she was in early in her career.

 

Dalton Trumbo is said to have had a hand in the screenplay - and it feels that way, too.

 

Regrettably, Belita doesn't get a chance to do any ice-skating.

 

I don't know if it has ever been shown on TCM, but if it hasn't, it sure should.
