Movie Review by Movie Addict
June 19th, 2015

Favorite Movie Quote: "He's been dead for a long time and didn't even know it."

Ripped from the headlines. This film could easily been made after this week's mass shooting in South Carolina, but it comes from 1947, just after the war.

Nothing much has changed in the intervening 68 years. We still have haters walking the streets, and people are still murdered with a motive that comes from within the killer.

Robert Young (Marcus Welby and Father Knows Best) is a bit out of character as he police detective trying to solve a murder involving three soldiers. He does a great job of getting to the crux of the matter - hate.

Robert Mitchum is a Sergeant trying to help solve the crime, and Robert Ryan got a Supporting Actor nomination for his role as the murderer.

An excellent message wrapped up in a noir drama. As important today as it was in 1947.
