Hugo Haas was an unusual auteur. A Jewish writer/actor/director born in Brno, in the Austro-Hungarian empire, he escaped to America during World War Two, and became a middle-aged character actor in many Hollywood films from the mid-forties. In 1951, he through it all in to start making his own films, serving as writer/actor/producer/director. His low budget independent films were picked up by major studios for the B side of the double bills. Hi first independent production was a hard-bitten noir tale about a bad girl who takes advantage of an older man. "The Girl on the Bridge" was his second film. While it maintained the dark cinematography of the first effort, the story is sweeting and more humane, even though it turns to tragedy in the final act. The acting is okay to good, the photography is pretty good, too, especially for such a low budget effort (the film reportedly cost $90,000 to produce), and it has an beautiful musical score (though a little overpowering at times). All in all, an unusual and interesting mood piece. If you like 50's noir, but you don't mind a gentler story, you may like this. If you find most early 50's low budget films too stylized and hokey for your taste, this may not be for you. As for me: I liked it!

Most of the acting is good in this 1950's movie. It is an interesting story of a descent person helping others to recogonize their worth.
