One of those post-code movies, like _Night of the Hunter_. in which the resolution is more than a little bit ambiguous. Excellent cult film, that has not yet found its cult. If it ever does, I'm all in. Dark, Dark, Dark.

Sociopathic charmer anti-hero, edgy late noir photography and plot, good (not great) actors for the genre. "Jazziness" and signature noir psychopathology. The class prejudice and elitism could be applied to today.

Bless Kanopy. I'm a brand new member (through the LA Public Library) and what a pleasure to be introduced to this never-even-heard-of noir gem starring an also never-heard-of Kate Manx. Dis this film all you want for it's rather tame presentation of its subject matter (by today's standards, ...Read more

Two creeps (portrayed by actors too old for their roles) get what they deserve. Don't waste your time.

Excellent movie never seen before!

Forgotten and probably deserves to remain forgotten. For its time it might have been edgy and even provocative but it feels like a missed opportunity. The sense of menace and sizzling sensuality never quite catches fire; some wonderful period slang and atmosphere, though, and gorgeous black ...Read more
