Fritz Lang directed Robert Ryan, Barbara Stanwyck and Paul Douglas in this film noir adaptation of Clifford Odets’ play about alienated working class people in Monterey, California. (Grant, p. 126)

Silver, Ward, Ursini, Porfirio, p. 72: “Its characters — subtly graded, complex creations that are never wholly one thing or another — transform the plot’s eternal triangle.”

These photos include a behind-the-scenes image of director Lang with Stanwyck as makeup is being applied. Code numbers: CBN-6, 18, 19, 38, 39, 43, 46, 48, 59, 61, 68, 72, 75, 92, 98, 99, 106, 113, 123, 126 (one photo is uncoded).
