falls into the wrong man/downward spiral subgenre of film noir. about a guy who unwittingly gets caught up in a robbery and then is forced to go on the lam. it’s anthony mann so the direction is good and the acting is fine, but not exceptional. steve brodie stars. he’s been in a bunch of solid noirs, but i can’t say he’s ever stuck out to me. he’s no richard conte. nothing about it really stood out for me, but it’s another solid noir. the genre that consistently produces b to b+ films.
