  • Novak's Numero Uno

    Reading the other reviews, it's purported that Kim Novak slept with Quine, Schermer and Waxman. Covering all the bases on this, her first film. I thought she was better in Pushover than a whole lot of her later films! She was young and fresh-looking. More natural, and did a real good job of portraying a woman who 'came on' to men who would give her what she wanted. Ahem.

    McMurray is great as a bad guy. (What else is new?) The rest of the movie is fairly forgettable. Roy Huggins' screenplay is a poor man's "Double Indemnity," although underrated director Richard Quine does manage to create a mood of suspense. As for the acting beyond McMurray, it ranges from good (Alan Nourse as a none too bright or competent cop) to decent (Phil Carey in the "good guy" role) to awful (Kim Novak, sexy and wooden, as always, as the femme fatale.) Give it a C plus. P.S. So let me understand this: Kim Novak slept with this film's producer and director, but not the screenwriter, huh? I wish to file a WGA grievance!

  • Double play

    Rather long and plodding, covering much of the same ground as Double Indemnity. Fred looks more tired than he pretends to be. But for my two cents, I'd never commit a murder to sleep with Barbara Stanwyck, but a young Kim Novak is another Film Noir

  • Fred As Good As Double Indemnity Role

    Was Friend and Son in law of Philip Waxman. Kim Novak was also his lover.Will be happy to tell more if any interest? So so film. Have his copy.Phil is no longer with us. Died in New York.

  • Novak's 1st Film!

    Not a bad film noire, which marked Kim Novak's debut, by Columbia. No doubt that she was going-to-be a BIG star.Still WEIRD to see Fred McMurray, of "My Three Sons" TV fame, playing a BAD guy. Plus the music score was decent & the black and white cinematography excellent. The movie's pace picks-up until it reaches its dramatic climax.Also, ice to see old L.A. (I think?) as a backdrop.
