| Still chilling espionage thriller with gritty documentary approach...
Highly popular during the mid-'40s was this thriller that resembles other spy dramas produced by Fox during this era--most notably, films like 13 RUE MADELEINE or BOOMERANG! which also used a documentary style. The location footage in New York City is fascinating as a time capsule and the story gets strong support from the excellent B&W photography.

Standout in the cast is Signe Hasso in a plum role as a woman running a dress shop as a front for espionage activities. She shows toughness and determination all the way through and is completely convincing in the female lead. William Eythe does a nice job as the agent sent by the FBI to expose the spy ring. In fact, all of the performances are first rate and the suspense is maintained until the surprise climax.

Well worth watching as an example of tight, suspenseful and gritty film noir in a style typical of the hard bitten dramas of the '40s.
