poor remake of “i wake up screaming” another fox noir, which was already a mediocre film. in the original cregar and mature do a solid job and so do carole landis and betty grable. not sure why they remade the film to be quite honest. the best part of the film was cregar’s performance as the obsessive detective. in this film the role is played by richard boone who isn’t bad here, but his performance doesn’t have the same dark touch as cregar’s. in pretty much every way this is an inferior film. too bad because the story has some potential with the my fair lady aspect and the obsessed dirty cop and the love triangles…oh well. might be the lowest grade i’ve ever given to a noir.
