But watchable as a crime movie. Still some insists on considering it a noir for unfathomable, to me, reasons. Photographically is a noir only for a couple of minutes toward the end. Plotwise it reminds me more of serials of the '30's. Based on flashbacks, it has got a sustained pace and good dialogues. This is the first movie of the era where I saw a white man courting a black girl (throwing a surefire line in a insecure italian:"I bet you can make a dish of pasta with meatballs"). A good timewaster: 6/10
