1949, Warner Bros., 94 min, USA, Dir: Roy Rowland

Van Johnson plays a dogged flatfoot determined to solve the murder of his partner, who may have been taking payoffs from local bookies. Nice noir touches enliven this early police procedural, and Norman Lloyd and Gloria De Haven are sensational in supporting turns. Charles Schnee’s script offers plenty of juicy bit parts for a cast of noir favorites, including costar Arlene Dahl. Directed by Roy Rowland. NOT ON DVD
