"Like in Borzage's Moonrise, Dane Clark plays an unlikable angry criminal named Eddy. Eddy is an escaped prisoner who goes to his girlfriend Simone Signoret (the excellent French actress who starred in such classics as Diabolique and Room at the Top) for financial help and a getaway. Since his capture Simone has tried to rebuild her life, even getting involved in a relationship with a reporter who got a false scoop from her. Despite the fact that the reporter respects her and she is nothing more than a doormat to Eddy, Simone finds to difficult to change.
This isn't a masterpiece of film noir but it's a nice example. It's directed moodily by Frank Tuttle (This Gun for Hire) but the fine performances by the leads is really the reason to watch."
