“Excellent noir thriller in which crime-journalist Milland, innocently involved with a girl subsequently murdered by his megalomaniac boss (Charles) Laughton, is then commissioned by Laughton to find the culprit. When he himself becomes the framed suspect, the trap seems closed… With strong performances (especially Laughton as the gross, sexually insecure tycoon, confident in his ability to control the law through his wealth and status), the film also delights through Farrow’s evocative direction…and John Seitz’s marvellous high contrast photography, portraying a world of isolation in which nothing is as it seems…” (TimeOut)
1948 Dir. John Farrow. 1.33:1 B&W dcp 95 min.
