Radio Times Review

This pleasant little crime drama - not quite a thriller and a shade too bright for a film noir - is directed with consummate skill by up-and-coming Edward Dmytryk, who had also worked with former crooner Dick Powell in their masterpiece Farewell My Lovely in the same year. Powell here continues to erase memories of his Busby Berkeley days at Warners, delivering a high-octane performance as he hunts down his wife's murderer in a Buenos Aires peopled with veteran character actors such as Walter Slezak and Morris Carnovsky. Unfortunately, the women (Micheline Cheirel, Nina Vale) are a shade uninteresting, but Powell's tough demeanour more than compensates.
