I’m all for melodramatic film noirs (there aren’t many, in fact this is an animal of its own). Add Rita Hayworth to the mix and viola, a hit! No wonder those prison guys in Shawshank Redemption went crazy over this movie. Lots of great quotes too.
To Win Without War - There is no humanity without the awareness of cruelty. As much as we want to believe in reason, in goodness, we have to remember otherwise and understand...
