| I don't understand why this movie is more readily available
This was one of the most entertaining films i'd seen in a very long time. First of all, Peter Lorre gives a performance like you've never seen this master do before. a playboy! the man is a pure wolf and offers some pretty racy scenes in that respect for a '40's film. Everything that comes from his lips is a sexual innuendo. The ending is a pretty good twist that i would be used to seeing in more modern films. Sydney, of course, does a fantastic performance. the comical elements of the film work beautifully and the masterful acting of Mr. Lorre causes the film to run smoothly and above all, entertaining. WB MUST release this title on DVD!
