One of Preminger's 'moodily fluid studies in perverse psychology' made at Fox in the forties and early fifties, here with the recurring noir theme of fatally obsessive relationships. Characteristically Preminger plays down the hysteria inherent in melodrama and does not employ noir chiaroscuro. Mitchum's almost dreamy restraint has the effect of heightening the sense of fatalism. Simmons' real obsession is her father. Outwardly angelic but inwardly predatory, her very blankness, suggestive of icy sexuality runs counter to the femme fatale stereotype
