Routine Dashiell Hammett murder mystery has  up to his usual business as a bodyguard to an important politician (Brian Donlevy) accused of murder. Where would film noir be without the double-crossing blonde? Nowhere! Don’t worry, is here too, and she’s lovely. It’s a solid movie, but nothing feels fresh or original.
