Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: It lacks conviction and distinction despite its hard-working principals. – A.H. Weiler, New York Times, Oct 15, 2014

Fresh: The Clifford Odets screenplay seems to have roused the realist in director Fritz Lang: the backwater atmosphere is as authentic as it is oppressive. – Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader, Oct 15, 2014

Fresh: A very Langian picture of the dangerous undercurrents in emotional relationships, excellently acted by the three principals. – Tony Rayns, Time Out, Oct 15, 2014

Fresh: There's much to admire here, not least Stanwyck's complex character and the dark, brooding feeling. – Film4, Oct 15, 2014

Good movie but..

Uumm why does iTunes have Marilyn Monroe top billed, she is just a small role, just like alot of other movies that put her face all over the cover so people will say "Oh! Marilyn Monroe shes hot let's see it " and in the description it says "stars golden globe winner Marilyn Monroe " and then it says "also starring barbara stanwyck "
Uumm no, this is Barbara stanwycks film not marilyns , she plays a small part .... But good film anyways

Sad, sad story

This a sad tale but great acting. Worth watching for sure. Cop out ending better ending in Sofie's Choice which would have been fitting!

Good but slow-moving

Love Barbara Stanwyck in this movie. The acting is good. Story is good, but slow. Marilyn has a minor part in this film but is in several scenes. Very much a chick-flick and is worth watching or owning.
