I have watched two supposedly top-rated films recently, and then I watched House On Telegraph Hill. While The City Sleeps was tedious in the extreme with a laughable murderer and the most monotonous plot about ambition in a newspaper office. Then there was Mildred Pierce, just a soap masquerading as a classic Film Noir. Finally there was this film which turned out to be a thoroughly enjoyable mystery with excellent acting and a tense plot. While it is no Kansas City Confidential or Asphalt Jungle, it merits higher ratings than some have given it. To write it off just because it showed American troops at Belsen is rather harsh - I was able to laugh it off in spite of the fact that my father was one of the first to arrive at the camp and it therefore should have given offence. Give this film a go, it is far better than some of the more highly rated "classics".
