This is what you expect from a good Hollywood film-noir thriller ā€“ dark shadows, a claustrophobic atmosphere, dangerous dames and hard-faced men. Tension builds due to the shady dealings of Ballin Mundson (George Macready), a South American casino owner, but mostly because of the doomed three-way relationship between the main characters. Director King Vidorā€™s study of the human nature is a minor classic; well made but not very original. Glenn Ford did his first major effort as the gambler who happens to reunite with a person who is trouble. Thatā€™s Rita Hayworth, doing the most memorable character of her career, as a dangerously sexy temptress.Ā
