“…A remarkably successful Hammett adaptation. Best sequence by far is the marathon beating-up sustained by Ladd in a bout of grating sado-masochism as Bendix (‘He’s a tough baby, he likes this’) coyly begs his ‘little rubber ball’ to bounce back for more. Shot and played with deceptive casualness, the sequence is central to the film…” (TimeOut London)
