Description by OLDIES.com:

Everything you want in a film noir: a tenacious detective (Robert Mitchum) spinning his wheels to make good. A drop-dead beauty (Jane Greer) up to no good, and moneyed mobster (Kirk Douglas) with a shark's grin, plus double-crosses, fall guys, shadowy rooms and bleak souls.
