I have watch quite a few Film Noir. I have to say this is one of my favorites. Great performance by one of the best Film Noir actors Sterling Hayden. Way ahead of it’s time. It is hard for me to watch a Film Noir that is not B/W, it is about shadow and darkness and camera angles and on location filming. Some of that darkness and shadow is harder to do in color. If it is in color you lose something, it is hard to explain. If you like classic Film Noir don’t miss this one.
