Editorial Reviews

Working-class dreamers Jonah (Thomas Mitchell) and Olaf (John Qualen) fish the Brooklyn waters and ponder their glorious plan: buy a big boat and head for sunny Cuba. Then an amoral gangster (John Garfield) puts the squeeze on the few bucks they've saved and puts the moves on Jonah's daughter (Ida Lupino), a restless good girl who'd just as soon be bad. And the two friends, the two gentle souls, begin a new plan: murder. Garfield inhabits his role with the amiable cruelty of a top rodent in a rat-eat-rat world, dominating this early-noir gem based on an Irwin Shaw play originally produced by Garfield's Group Theatre colleagues. On screen it's polished diamond hard by trenchant performances, Anatole Litvak's sure-handed direction and moody cinematography by the great James Wong Howe.

Format: DVD
This odd little film effectively weds comedy and drama and works in practice in a way that you'd never believe if someone just laid out the plot for you on paper.

John Garfield takes some chances here with his fan base as he plays a very one-dimensional hood, Goff, who goes for the easy pickings. Rather than go to the big city where he would most probably have to contend with gangsters rougher and smarter than himself, he moves in on a fishing community and chooses to shake down the peace-loving and gentle populace.

Thomas Mitchell and John Qualen play pals Jonah Goodwin and Olaf Johnson, who live for the nights they go fishing - they both have day jobs. They comprise most of the comedy and the most touching parts of the drama as they gradually come to realize that the law won't help them get the ruffian Goff out of their lives, and they may just have to take action themselves. With someone like Goff, there is only one action that will work - murder.

Ida Lupino plays a rather one-dimensional character herself - Jonah Goodwin's daughter Stella - and as such she is just made for Goff, whom she desperately wants on any terms regardless of what he is doing to her own father. She finds existence in the fishing village boring and is looking for a way out when Goff comes along and sweeps her off her feet by dazzling her with dollars and his devil-may-care attitude. I have to really applaud John Garfield's performance here - he shows not a shred of humanity. Considering he had already built up a reputation as playing sensitive loners, this was quite a chance he was taking.

The end pulls punches compared to the story it is based upon, but you have to lay the blame for that at the feet of the censors at the time, not Warner Brothers. Highly recommended.

I do not own this DVD-R, and by all accounts it's a decent transfer, but it is going for almost Criterion pricing at $26+ . These on demand vault releases are certainly better than not being able to see these films, but we are expected to pay virtually the same for a bare bones release on a format that is of questionable longevity. As for the movie itself, if the cast and crew doesn't sell you on wanting to see it, maybe this movie isn't for you ;). I just would rather pay a few more bucks for a proper DVD release with at least a couple of extras, or pay a fair amount less for these budget on-demand DVD-R releases. Keep an eye out for this one on TCM, or wait till they bring the prices down on these archive DVD-R bare-bones discs.

this was a little slow at first, but stick with it. it gets real good. the acting is supurb and the story twisty. i don't see why amazon charges so much. there are no extras and no scene jumping. it is a good copy , crisp and clear.

Format: DVD
Stella Goodwin(Ida Lupino)is a working girl tired of her boyfriend,George Watkins(Eddie Albert)and her bossy mom(Ailine MacMahon)and her poor father,Jonah(Thomas Mitchell)
Jonah and his best friend Olaf Johnson(John Qualen)get away from it all by going fishing once a week in their small boat.
Along comes sadistic hoodlum Harold Goff(John Garfield)who make fisherman pay him rent or their boats are destroyed.
Stella meets Goff and falls in love with him.Goff only uses her when he finds out that her father and Olaf hava a large sum of money put away to buy a better boat.
After Jonah and Olaf are forced to sign a contract by Goff that he had falsely lent them money,Stella is running around with the gangster,and the law wont do anything to help,they decide to get rid of him themselves.
Based on the play The Gentle People(Irwin Shaw)
Humphrey Bogart was the first pick to play Harold Goff.
They asked John Garfield about what he thought about this film,he said,I always played MR Nice Guy down on his luck.I thought Id try something different.
