I'm troubled at how sexy I find Orson Welles in this movie. I'm redeemed though by how much I root for Edward G. Robinson to persevere.
Ooooooooh.... Orson Welles at his creepiest! Minute by minute, it's a great nail-biter.
the best movie I've seen on Fandor yet .. Edward G. Robinson was very good and so was Orson Welles , Loretta Young was just ok . The suporting cast was very good ... no one I recognized from old 1950s low budget TV series .
Wonderful performance by Mr. Welles.
Wow. Orson Welles sure did know how to make a movie!
