4.0 out of 5 stars "I can't look in the mirror without gagging." July 4 2005
By Dymon Enlow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape Verified Purchase
Would make a perfect double feature with DOUBLE INDEMNITY.

A man in NYC is murdered and robbed of $300,000 in marked money. A year later some of the bills start showing up in Los Angeles. Detectives Bruner and Farnum are assigned to follow the money trail. It leads to lounge singer Ida Lupino and eventually tension and backstabbing between the two partners.

It might not be action-packed, but I enjoyed it quite a bit. The acting is top-notch. The story is interesting and hard-boiled. The direction by Don Siegel - who'd later go on to direct DIRTY HARRY- is excellent with numerous scenes shot on city streets and the horse track (I loved watching the crowd and seeing the old cars). Any fan of classic film noir and older crime movies should have this in their collection. If it came out on DVD I'd buy it in a second.

D: Don Siegel (THE KILLERS, INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS)

Lilli Marlowe - Ida Lupino (THEY DRIVE BY NIGHT, HIGH SIERRA)

Cal Bruner - Steve Cochran (WHITE HEAT, THE BEST YEARS OF OUR LIVES)

Jack Farnham - Howard Duff (BRUTE FORCE, THE NAKED CITY)

Captain Michaels - Dean Jagger (ELMER GANTRY, BAD DAY AT BLACK ROCK)

Francey Farnham - Dorothy Malone (BASIC INSTINCT, THE BIG SLEEP)

Sam Marvin, bartender - Dabbs Greer (THE GREEN MILE, INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS)

5.0 out of 5 stars "lupino and Cochran at their NOIR best!" May 18 2008
By Dan Celli,X,DJ.Cartoonist/Author - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape Verified Purchase
IDA LUPINO BRINGS HER TOP GAME TO THE SCREEN. HER CHARACTER IS A CYNICAL WORLD WISE WOMAN.
BUT DEEP DOWN IS LOOKING FOR A LOVING RELATIONSHIP WITH A FEW BUCKS THROWN IN FOR GOOD
MEASURE. 2 COP'S FIND STOLEN MONEY, AND ONE OF THEM KEEPS SOME OF IT FOR HIM SELF.
GUESS WHICH ONE IS THE BAD COP? HOWARD DUFF&STEVE COCHRAN PLAY THE 2 COP'S.
THE GREAT DEAN JAGGER IS ALSO IN THIS SPECIAL FILM NOIR.
THIS FILM IS WORTH ADDING TO YOUR NOIR COLLECTION!
P.S. VIDEO BEAT:DVD.
4.0 out of 5 stars Good boys go bad March 8 2015
By George - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape Verified Purchase
Effective crime drama about two police officers who go "bad." A good vcast consisting of Ida Lupingo, Howard Duff, Dorothy Malone, Steve Cochran and Dean Jaggers turns the film into a piece well worth watching. Lupino, Malone and Duff are excellent. Moody, realistic and most
impressionable.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Worthwhile Curiosity Dec 31 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Ida Lupino co-authored the screenplay, co-produced the film and is the only reason to get on board with this underproduced and dully directed picture. It is enough. She is alluring and dynamic holding not only the screen but the entire picture together. The supporting cast, Steve Cochran, Howard Duff and Dean Jagger are all more than adequate in their perfunctory way. Dorothy Malone, co-starred but barely in the picture, registers in her brief part as Duff's on-screen wife. The Blu Ray presentation is satisfactory but not more than that.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good minor noir Oct. 25 2015
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Good minor noir. Ida Lupino shines throughout. What comes through is what an intelligent actress she was. It is no surprise that she excelled as a director and screenwriter in other noir features. She definitely was a pioneer for women in Hollywood. The other actors in the film were very good. The theme of corrupt cops is a touchy subject that was often handled very well in films in the 1940's and 1050's. Somehow today we have become very timid as a culture in acknowledging that criminal behavior and corruption exist in our nation's police force. I'm not sure this film could be made today. Any criticism of the police today is seen as supporting criminals. As a society, this would be a big mistake. As the film shows, we are all vulnerable to temptation and greed. I wish today we could feel free enough to make these kind of films.
