+ high-res version

Watched: 3 November

Superior noir by Norman Foster, all canted angles, murky shadows and paranoia-fuelled dashing around San Francisco. Ann Sheridan’s Eleanor does the majority of the latter as she tries to find her husband – who witnesses a gangland murder during the first scene – before the killer can rub him out. Joining or tailing her are Dennis O’Keefe’s smarmy newspaper man and Robert Keith’s curt detective, an excellent pair of supporting characters. Entertainingly snappy. (****)
