3 stars out of 5 -- "Fritz Lang's penultimate US film revisits the subject of his first sound film, M....Easy to admire..."
"Fritz Lang's fabulously cynical noir-inflected thriller is as much a satire on media machinations as an old-fashioned detective story..."
Description by OLDIES.com:
Fritz Lang (The Big Heat), whose early-career expressionist works would strongly influence the film-noir genre, directs this stylistically understated noir that features an abundance of starpower rare for the genre: Dana Andrews, Rhonda Fleming, George Sanders, Thomas Mitchell, Vincent Price, Ida Lupino and other notables.
- Theatrical Release: May 1956
