Noirfictions Rating:
In short:  While it lacks the intrigue of The Maltese Falcon and the snappy dialogue of The Big Sleep, there's something compelling about this film based on David Goodis' novel.  Goodis' world is much more pessimistic than Chandler's and Hammett's (happy ending aside), putting the noir in this film noir.
