Boozy Assistant DA Cleve Marshall (Wendell Corey) reels from a stifling marriage into an affair with the mysterious Thelma Jordon (Barbara Stanwyck). He's so smitten, he ignores the shadowy and sinister Tony Laredo (Richard Rober) and the sickly aunt loaded with dough. When murder jars him from Thelma's spell, he finds himself working both sides of the law. Noir master Robert Siodmak does a spellbinding job with a terrific script, and Stanwyck-Queen of Noir-offers a terrific, two-faced turn in one of her rarely screened films.
