Steady film noir
production fraught with suspense, twisting its unique plot and characters to a clever and frightening conclusion. Milland is the shrewd editor of Crimeways
Magazine which is published by Laughton, a megalomaniacal media tycoon who kills his mistress. Milland tries to
solve murder, but all clues point back at him! Almost stolen by the eccentric as usual Elsa Lanchester. In 1987, the film was remade with a military setting in NO WAY OUT, starring Kevin Costner and Gene Hackman.
