Brief Synopsis – A secret service agent takes on the case of a counterfeiter who has averted the law for more than a decade.
My Take on it – I was intrigued by this movie’s plot and was curious how a crime thriller like this one would hold up 65 years after it was made.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t manage to stand the test of time and is too slow moving.
The mix of a love story with a crime thriller just didn’t work well in this case and the movie feels very unsatisfying.
Thr short runtime of 88 minutes doesnt help either because it still feels drawn out.
I enjoyed some of the twists, but overall it is far from perfect.
Bottom Line – Mediocre crime thriller that moves way too slow and feels unsatisfying by the end of its short 88 minute runtime. Doesn’t stand up well after 65 years.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Walter Huston was originally to have played Skipper Miller, but he died just as production began. (From IMDB)
Rating – BAFTA Worthy
