Of course the plot strains credibility. Many crime pictures of the period do. But it's a nice, enjoyable movie in any case, well directed and expertly acted by Nolan, Arnold, and Lamour. Tyrone Power is classy and handsome but not very exciting in this role, or believable.
The best performance is by Lloyd Nolan, who is lively and charming in the role of a crook who does not flinch from murder. Rather than playing the stereotype gun moll with a heart of gold, Dorothy Lamour shows some real depth in her portrayal of Nolan's girlfriend and ultimately proves she can be tough as well. Plus she sings two good songs.
