A movie fulla mean people. On the whole, totally silly, but a "crakerjack yarn" as they used to say - it was mesmerizing to watch. A little more black & white than the usual Lang black & white film, but it's got no-nonsense Gloria during one of her many... um... interesting... lip-incarnations, and Glen Ford is in his prime terse-delivery days. Mouse said the whole suppressed male homosexuality take on this film was all wrong - they were really more like angry bull dykes - she wasn't serious..I think.
