It's a great film. Top marks for the release.
The book, different to a lot of other JMC's - an uphill first half and a downhill ride on ice the second.
Brings to minds Kaminsky and 'Mildred Pierced' (what a title that is). Good story, too.

Love that Kaminsky title.

HBO has made a mini-series out of this with a much better cast, including Kate Winslet as Mildred, and directed by Todd Haynes. It will air later this year and reportedly sticks much closer to Cain's novel than the movie. Sounds promising.

I'll have to be sure to watch that. I hadn't read about it.

People who accuse diector Curtiz of being a hack with no personal style should watch this one and eat their words.
