Richard Quine, a sometime actor best known today for his career as a director at Columbia in the 50s and early 60s, never became a cult hero, but a surprising number of his pictures hold up pretty well. This is one of them, a 1954 noir item with echoes of Double Indemnity. An aging cop (Fred MacMurray) falls in love with a bank robber's girlfriend (Kim Novak in her first major role, and if you're as much of a pushover for her early work as I am, you can't afford to miss this). Adapted from two novels—Thomas Walsh's The Night Watch and William S. Ballinger's Rafferty—by Roy Huggins; with Phil Carey, Dorothy Malone, and E.G. Marshall.
