Dir. Anthony Mann (1948).
Desperate con crashes out and takes his winsome lawyer hostage, little suspecting that the whole thing is a suicide set-up orchestrated by the evil crime boss for whom he took the fall. Anthony Mann directs with his customary muscular economy; John Alton’s noir cinematography is a minor miracle.
