Chris Cross (Edward G. Robinson) is a cashier duped into crime and murder by Kitty (Joan Bennett) and her boyfriend, Johhny (Dan Duryea). Cross rescues Kitty, who then pursuades him to sell his paintings under her name, with some chilling results.
Harsh morality tale presenting a world where goodness is exploited. But it's not textbook film noir, rather, it's dark melodrama with a classic femme fatale and a lot more of black humour.
