95 minute running time, so the perfect length. This was not your average studio movie, and it was good. Noir but with a heavy romance angle … doomed lovers. Farley Granger had sort of feminine good looks with his full mouth and dark brow … Cathy O'Donnell looks like the Tiger Mom’s older daughter Sophia, a real beauty.
I didn’t know any of the back story (Nick Ray’s directorial debut, etc.), but I did feel like this is a special movie, it’s unusual … someone said Ray didn’t know what he wasn’t supposed to do, which made it really fresh and interesting.
Anyway, if you haven’t seen it, you should make the effort to do so, I recommend it.
