A minor film by Douglas Sirk (1948), worth seeing for the rare spectacle of Sirk's dense, angular visual style operating in a film noir context, and a screenplay (originated by Sam Fuller) that touches on some Hitchcockian themes. A convicted murderess (Pat Knight) falls in love with her parole officer (Cornel Wilde), and both must go on the run when her former lover is shot. A still from the film became the basis for a series of paintings by Richard Hamilton. 79 min.
