Film noir starring Robert Mitchum as Jeff Bailey, the world-weary former detective who escapes to small town Bridgeport to start a new life. But his past, in true noir fashion, won’t let him go, and is revealed in flashback. Kirk Douglas, playing Whit Stirling, turns up to pay back Bailey for his affair with his girlfriend. The shadows and dimly-lit rooms associated with noir make up this wonderfully atmospheric drama from the director of Cat People.
