Frank Enley ( Van Heflin) has got a problem.  That problem is named Joe Parkson ( Robert Ryan).  The plot is so simple that it requires a spoiler alert to even talk about it.  Enley and Parkson were buddies in the same military unit ( I believe Air Force) and were both held in a World War II POW camp with their comrades.  Enley was the commanding officer of the unit.  Parkson spoke with Enley about a escape plan.  Enley took this information and sold out his comrades for food. He alerted the camp commanding officer.  This information was used to ambush the escaping men and they were all killed with the exception of Parkson who faked death but was left permanently crippled.   He has a axe to grind with Enley.

This was wonderfully filmed, particularly a lake scene early in the picture.  Its a pretty good film, though I don't believe its as good as Eddie Muller says it is.  This is the rare occasion where I kinda go against him.  Still, its a worthy look.  I rate this one a 7.5 out of 10...

Eddie Muller presented this movie on TCM (not Noir Alley)

I recorded the intro/outros and the link are below, but they're quite short. If you've seen the Noir Alley versions (which I've posted earlier in this thread), I don't think these add much of anything
