To be honest, I wasn’t too thrilled with this at first.  It was a solid but lackluster noir, and in a lot of ways not very noir at all.  Mitchum’s performance was definitely the highlight, everything else about it was just slightly above average.  But holy shit, the ending.  You think it’s going to lead up to a rather dull, possibly even disappointing, conclusion and then WHAM.  The last minute of this movie is pure genius, and just enough to elevate it above the mediocre 7 score I would have given it otherwise.  Rating: 8
