Orson Welles sports an ill advised Irish accent as a seaman who winds up caught between murderous villains and a crafty femme fatale. There's a cool shoot-out at the end set in a hall of mirrors. Some weird imagery and an incomprehensible narration bog it down though.

It took me about an hour to get into this film, if it was anyone else but Orson Welles I would have turned it off long before. But at about the hour mark, the story took an interesting turn and I actually started to enjoy it. Could have done without the fake Irish brogue and the slow beginning, but the terrific ending made up for it. Recommended to patient audiences only!

SPOILERS Rita Hayworth was so made for screen. He was icredible beautifull and a fine woman. She's a legend, and is in that top 5 of actress of old times, that have no comparission with today's. So, the movie prettty is about her, and how she manipulates a poor devil with her enchant and charming. The movie is for momments predictable, but that is not essentially bad, because it has 60 years and we've seen A LOT of times the plot. Poor fella, falling in love of the beuty, who marries and "bad" guy, who's friend of an even "badder". Orson Welles was indeed one of the best american directors and he doesn't only writes a fantastic script, but he also have a great aesthetic sense. For momments, the style reminded me a lot of Hitchkcok. An all time classic, that you can't miss.
