    Ida Lupino was one of my favorite leading ladies in the movies. I fell in love with her in the roles she played.

    • Ida Lupino was a remarkable lady, as well known for being a director as an actor. In the 1950’s that was almost unheard of.

  2. Dam good movie, lots of intrigue and questions. Will he won’t he be caught? Should he clean.
    And of course Idea Ida Lupina is great here both in the film and directing.

    Moral codes are the codes we live by. Each of us is given our free agency to make our choices in life. It is always the children who will suffer by our decisions, when the rules are broken. This movie was made in 1953. The moral codes and attitudes that existed then, still exist today. We are the keeper of these codes. The garbage and the trash that is displayed on television and in the movies of today, will certainly have an effect and lead our young generation in the wrong moral direction, as long as the parents allow their children to view and to be exposed to this inappropriate kind of behavior. As for the director, as well as the writer of this movie, the decision of the ending is left to our own moral code.

  4. My mom used to say “People don’t mean to be evil, sometimes they just don’t understand what good is”

  5. This movie started out innocently and then it exploded into lies,and more lies. The ending was less dramatic it was sad.
