This is an engrossing movie that pulls you in. See it from the start. I do not believe it is on video at this time, but it shows up on TCM from time to time. Taught survival/double cross movie as the lead wakes up in the desert and must try to get to civilization with nothing. He has been betrayed by his wife and her lover.
Robert Ryan is excellent in the lead.
Some cinematic techniques like switching from desert to swimming pool are very effective counter points showing the wife and husband in diametrically opposed situations. Ultimately, this film is about a journey and attempt to survive.
