07.01.05DVD Another pretty good classic noir by the guy who did the great Naked City and Rififi. Richard Widmark is at his best in this one, playing a pathetic lowlife sweating and oozing all around London for an hour and a half before fate catched up with him. His part reminded me of a seedier (if that's possible) and more desperate (again, if that's possible) version of Tony Curtis' character in Sweet Smell of Success. Very enjoyable.
