Basehart was freakily intense! The scene where he extracts the bullet from his side without anaesthetic - owwww! The cimetography was crackerjack, too. Mann was the Man. The sewer scene is often confused with the one in "The Third Man" by a number of reviewers over the years, I've noticed. The details are so easily transposed, I guess.

Hear Hear. Let us now praise John Alton as well. "Freakily intense" just about describes his work on every picture he shot for Mann as well.

I need to watch T-Men again, dammit!
