Long-winded: is Bogart looking for a letter? A gun? Female character is treated as arm candy/weak femme fatale, and African-Americans are not well-treated. I fast-forwarded to the end.

A competent film noir with a convoluted plot. Bogey is fine, as a GI trying to solve his buddy's murder. Lizabeth Scott plays her role with a certain ambiguity, which makes it hard to guess whose side she winds up on. Marvin Miller is a psycho thug, contrasting with his later TV role as the benign deliverer of million-dollar checks for John Beresford Tipton on "The Millionaire." Good photography. Recommended.

Film noir fun. Bogart & Scott have a field day with this flick.

Good, but not great. Bogart very capable as the paratrooper/investigator. Lizabeth Scott looks like a blonde Bacall and plays well off of Bogie. She gives a very good performance to make the ending believable. The action flows and the story has a nice twist ending. Entertaining movie.

Humphrey Bogart is my favorite actor but even with that, this is a slow mover. Something interesting about Scott but her acting talents are limited. Carnovsky was good and Marvin Miller especially ominous. All in all, a disappointment. 2 and a half stars.
