Properly improper
The men in this picture are gamblers and killers. They play dirty and resort to violence. The women who associate with them do not seem to be much better. But despite all this, the characters still manage to exhibit a proper manner of behaving (at least on the surface). In an ironic way, that serves to make this type of story work. Maybe, it is because such composure lends itself perfectly to spoofing the life of hardened criminals. And ultimately, that is exactly what this film seems to be: a sharp satire.

It comes off rather smoothly, too, thanks to the wonderful chemistry of the two leads: Stewart Granger and Jean Simmons (married in real life). Check these two performers out in YOUNG BESS and in FOOTSTEPS IN THE FOG, entirely different productions that indicate if anything their tremendous range and talent.
