i have trouble remembering whether or not i’ve seen a noir or not. one reason is that a lot of them are essentially the same, but the other reason is that about half of the titles have nothing, or little, to do with the content of the film. naked kiss, i wake up screaming, act of violence, etc. of course there are exceptions like maltese falcon or key largo, but the point remains.
this one is an early noir (1941) of mediocre quality. of course a mediocre noir is better than most.
