(1947) Directed by Jacques Tourneur. Robert Mitchum, Jane Greer, Kirk Douglas. (96 min.)
Part of the Car Crazy film series. A former private eye running a Podunk gas station is sucked into working for a ruthless gambler. The weary detective in a rumpled trench coat, in thrall to a no-good dame, narrating his troubled past: this is quintessential film noir.
“Cinematic perfection, a Hollywood classic that’s as great and as enjoyable as its reputation has promised” (San Francisco Chronicle).
