When Ralph’s son, Taylor Henry, a gambler and the lover of Paul’s sister Opal, is murdered, Paul’s right arm, Ed Beaumont, finds his body on the street. Nick uses the financial situation of The Observer to force the publisher Clyde Matthews to use the newspaper to raise the suspicion that Paul Madvig might have killed Taylor.
Plot: A crooked politician finds himself being accused of murder by a gangster from whom he refused help during a re-election campaign.

Like A Rubber Ball…You Come Bouncing Back To Me
A witty and complex script combined with a Ladd/Lake teaming, and a homosexual psychotic are the ingredients in this early seedling of Film-noir. There are interesting scenes of darkness but the complete Noir sensibility was still a few years away.

This is a political story full of the corruption that has become standard in our thinking of Politics, with a murder mystery and a love triangle just in case you find your attention wandering. After all it is from a Dashiell Hammett novel (his favorite) and the complexities both confound and challenge the presentation.

There is one unforgettable scene where William Bendix lays a beating on Alan Ladd that is remarkable in its staging, makeup and brutality. There are some testy romantic confrontations and some hard boiled dialog that keeps things humming.

A well liked film that has a smooth pace and is definitely marred by some of the conventions of the time while breaking a few along the way. This is Film-Noir but not in the purest sense and if you’re looking for the real deal (in the most definite) this is not it.
