Everything's going right for Mike Donovan (Barry Sullivan). He came home after the war, married his gal, got a regular job as a bank teller in Hollywood, makes payments on a house in the 'burbs. But, as the voice-over narrator of this on-edge film noir notes, “One day the world's all right. The next, it's nowhere.” Nice-guy Donovan's life quickly begins to unravel. He's wrongly suspected of grand larceny at the bank, hounded by a dogged insurance investigator convinced of his guilt and loses his job and home. Is there any way he can stop his free fall? As the insurance shamus determined to crush Donovan, Charles McGraw (The Narrow Margin, Armored Car Robbery) glares and growls in the style that helped make him one of the icons of noir. Dorothy Malone plays Donovan's supportive wife. And, in solid noir tradition, Mary Beth Hughes is sizzling blonde ice as an avaricious femme fatale.

Great Film Noir.DONT MISS.
However, the real star of this B-Noir is the city itself. LA and vicinity in the mid 1950s, lots of fine location shooting shimmering through a stunning Warner Archive print. And unlike a lot of noirs, there's plenty of daytime scenes so it's easy to take in all of the fine location shooting, glimpses at how people lived and looked sixty years ago. I was a child in the 1950s and, though not from LA, I remember when the landscape of a major city looked like this. It's quite comforting to look back into the past and feel a sense of nostalgia, even if it's the heartless landscape of a Film Noir with fate just waiting to kick you in the behind.
The Warners Archive MOD DVDr is a nice anamorphic wide screen (1.85) transfer.
