Roger Moore Movie Nation A Technicolor novelty and rare Rains star vehicle...entirely too haphazard to be the compact, dark noirish morality tale it's meant to be. Rated: 2/4 May 8, 2021 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews The dreary story is about as exciting as sitting at a railroad station to watch the trains go by. Rated: C+ Oct 4, 2017 Full Review Brandon Judell CultureCatch This solid adaptation embraces Simenon's favorite archetype, an innocent who mistakenly thinks he's committed some evil act, and then eventually actually does. . . . A little thriller that's worth every one of the 82 minutes you'll spend with it. Rated: 8/10 Aug 14, 2013 Full Review Read all reviews

Steve D Rains is solid, the film is not. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/23/24 Full Review Audience Member A movie with good intentions, this one may have left too much on the cutting room floor to glue together the character motivations and make a solid narrative. Claude Rains is always a charismatic performer and the cast was solid, but the character's are clearly driven by the plot, which flattens the overall experience. Probably not worth your time. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Tom M Fans of Claude Rains will enjoy this. Marius Goring is very good. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 10/29/20 Full Review Audience Member Implausible Simenon tale saved by excellent Claude Rains performance--A Claude Rains Technicolor Treat!! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Read all reviews
