I found that this film went on for too long and it just wasn't very exciting. The cast are all OK but I didn't really connect with Robert Taylor and I felt disappointed with the role played by Lana Turner. I was anticipating a strong female lead role. What a wasted opportunity. She could have given some spunk to this story but she just falls flat. The most interesting character is Van Heflin and he delivers some dialogue gems throughout the film. It's his delivery of these lines that make him an incredibly likable drunk.
There are some interesting scenes, eg, the fake killing, but there aren't enough. The film is OK but it somehow left me feeling a bit detached from the proceedings and I didn't care too much for what happened to any of the characters. I watched it and that was that. I'm keeping onto the film to watch at a later date. Maybe, it's one of those films that improves with a second viewing.
