      William R. P Brennan gets it. Good, he was a rotten human being Rated 3 out of 5 stars 09/15/23 Full Review deke p 1946! . Xlnt film noir. GERALDINE FITZGERALD glookin!JOHN GARFIELD. WALTER BRENNAN still old in 1946!. Suspenseful denoument. Seen it on tv a couple times, latest 7.14.22 Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member To me, this is John Garfield's finest film role and Geraldine Fitzgerald, Faye Emerson and Walter Brennan are all equal to him. I love this film... the performances, direction and cinematography are all sublime. It's only imperfections are a clunky open and a finale that doesn't quite feel satisfying. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Frances H A good cast is let down by an inadequate script. Not the best of Golden Age film noir. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 09/15/20 Full Review Audience Member Above average crime drama with good performances from Garfield, Brennan, Coulouris, and Fritzgerald. Script is just okay and plot is predictable. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review ashley h Nobody Lives Forever is a fantastic film. It is about G.I. Nick Blake who has just received an honorable discharge from the army on medical reasons. John Garfield and Geraldine Fitzgerald give amazing performances. The screenplay is well written. Jean Negulesco did a great job directing this movie. I enjoyed watching this motion picture because of the drama and mystery.
