The very polite cop is obviously a Canadian, no Robert Ryan/ Dana Andrews tough guy here. You don't see any trash littering the landscape, obviously we are not in the states. And as for Marilyn, yeah she's eye candy for a little while, but her best scene is when her husband meets her in the tower and gives her payback. I'll take Polly (Jean Peters) in a minute, after I dispose of her nitwit husband.
