Rating of
2.5/4 

A marine freshly returned from service goes looking for his missing buddy and finds himself entangled in an old murder case. This film noir follows the formula almost to the letter and has been copied and parodied many times since (most notably by Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang). It's a little heavy on the melodrama and the supporting cast don't quite live up the performance of it's lead; Lizabeth Scott is lovely to look at, but she's no Bacall. As it lacks the extra touch of class brought by Wilder or Huston, the film is carried entirely by Bogart who could make a Coco Pops commercial cool, tough and uncompromising, and he saves it from mediocrity with his typically charismatic performance. Generic but entertaining.
