The sins of the father haunt a smalltown schlub in Frank Borzage’s noir. A murderer’s son (Dane Clark) kills his lifelong bully in self-defense. He’s wracked with guilt and worry that some stain of sin has been passed down, but not so wracked that he doesn’t quickly take up with the bully’s fiancee (Gail Russell) while he frets over being found out. Borzage balances a satisfyingly twisty plot with a thoughtful probing of ethics and fate. -Lee Gardner
