Plot: A private detective is hired by a General- a father of two daughters whose younger daughter is blackmailed by a stranger. The detective goes on to find the stranger & before he gets him,the stranger is murdered. So are a few others. A chain of events follow and he finds that the elder daughter is part of the imbroglio. Finally, the detective makes the bits fall into place.
- Humphrey Bogart shines in his classy avatar as the detective agent.
- The lady who plays Rutledge performs pretty well.
- The screenplay keeps one guessing & catches us on the wrong-foot time and again.
Too many characters & that spoils the party to an extent.
My Rating: 9.0/10
