Hollywood studios produced some spellbinding thrillers in the wartime years, here calling on the consummate storytelling skills of Graham Greene who adapted his own British novel for an LA setting. Alan Ladd is a murderous hit man with a hidden soft spot who gets more than he bargains for when he tangles with slinky undercover agent Veronica Lake and crime boss Laird Cregar. The LA streets have rarely been meaner.
