Anthony Mann directed this brutal film noir — a man is in prison who was framed, and the man who framed him helps him escape, because he is sure he will be killed during the escape attempt, but the man survives and goes looking for revenge, but complicating matters are his bad girl girlfriend and the kindly social worker who helped him.
The perverse love triangle between escaped convict Dennis O’Keefe, his gun moll girlfriend Claire Trevor, and social worker Marsha Hunt is just one of the many unique elements to this noir classic.
