This is just a great movie, especially for Noir lovers. Dark, foreboding, and evil, Orson welles character, Charles Rankin, cloaks himself in new identity, in a smalltown that seems untouched by time. The supporting cast is terrific, and Edward G. Robinson as an almost jaded war crimes investigator, and Welles Nemisis, is excellent. Welles dinnertable speech alone is enough to reccomend the movie.

This is a very good film-noir, albeit one of the lesser known ones, but a good one. Orson Welles is an escaped Nazi war criminal named Franz Kindler who hides out in a bucolic Connecticut town. He becomes a teacher at a prep school for boys and marries the headmaster's lovely but clueless daughter (Loretta Young) who gives a great performance. Edward G. Robinson is also terrific in his respective role as a war crimes commissioner who is hot on Franz Kindler's trail. The two play a cat & mouse game that ends in a dramatic climax atop the town¿s clock tower. The film may sometimes seem forced and over melodramatic but, I believe this helps to enhance the dark and brooding atmosphere. Also starring are Richard Long and Martha Wentworth. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
