This will never rank in anyones list of 'great' films.. it's a pot boiler, star vehical, but for what it is, it works very well. An improbable plot still manages to grip and hold the tension all the way through as things slide out-of-controll for the heroine. She never looses our support by doing something silly. The resolution, whilst not being the most inventive ever, is effective enough to be not too predictable.
Not really a 'Noir', as it is mostly in full daylight, few shadows, no femme fatalle, no hard drinking cynical lead male, but lives quite easily allongside 'proper' Noirs due to its 'trapped by circumstances beyond your control' plot.
Recomended if you love 1940's b&w 'Noir' type films and have run out of the top notch ones.
