- Sterling Hayden - Dix Handley
- Louis Calhern - Alonzo D. Emmerich
- Sam Jaffe - Doc Erwin Riedenschneider
- Marilyn Monroe - Angela Phinlay
- John Huston
Just ‘wow’. Fantastic movie and considering it’s age it still looks fresh and moves at a great pace. The characters are fleshed out superbly with a brilliant script and great acting most notably from Hayden and Jaffe. Jaffe steals the show.
John Huston was an absolute master of the Noir genre and this is one of his best. Brilliant.
