  1. John D.:
    I still miss Richard Widmark – a quite dependable actor who always turned in a very good performance, and yet, never reached the star power of Cagney or Wayne.

    But that scene where he pushes the woman (in a wheelchair no less) down the stairs REALLY makes you sit up and take notice! And his character did it with such nonchalance.
    Wonder if Nicholson used this as a study when he portrayed the Joker?

    A good quote & a good film noir for a good Friday.

    Have a great weekend & stay safe out there.


  2. Victor Mature sitting in the background is probably thinking “I’m the main character in this movie, but this is the guy that everybody is going to be talking about”.
