Somewhat interesting noir
28 May 2004 | by dcole-2See all my reviews

Not completely successful, but OK noir melodrama. When drifter Don Kelly brings home drunk Paul Fix to his farm and gets him inside, he gets caught up with the old man's much younger wife, Vera Ralston. Sexual tensions ensue and it looks like it's going to be a low budget POSTMAN ALWAYS RINGS TWICE, but then it veers off into semi-preposterous territory with the arrival of runaway nymphet Luana Anders. Still, all the actors work hard (though Ralston was never much of an actress) and veteran director Joe Kane moves it along fast and makes every scene seem assured and real. Worth seeing, even if it's no lost classic. Ralston retired from films soon after this one.
