Aroview: The jewel in the crown of all things film noir has hardly dated an iota despite countless imitations. You'll savour each moment as not-so-innocent Fred MacMurray is lured into Barbara Stanwyck's web of murder. Their screen chemistry remains unsurpassed. Raymond Chandler's dialogue is magical - the experience quite extraordinary.
4 stars (Very Good) A ground breaking film in its time and still a top quality movie by any standards. Raymond Chandler's script still shines. Hard to believe that this film was made over 60 years ago ~Anon
