      Alexander Shaw The Spectator It seems a pity to have to criticise adversely any film coming front Hollywood which shows signs of trying to break away from the monotonous routine, but Whistle Stop misses practically all its marks. Mar 14, 2018 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews The wannabe film noir is dumber than dumb. Rated: C- Jul 21, 2010 Full Review Pablo Villaça Cinema em Cena Melodramtico e com uma trama repleta de furos, este pseudo-noir merece crditos apenas por ter oferecido a Ava Gardner seu primeiro grande papel. Rated: 1/5 Jul 31, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews

      Victor T A very boring film with a very beautiful Ava Gardner! Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/19/24 Full Review Audience Member Not good. Ava Gardner Gearge Raft Rated 2 out of 5 stars 06/14/19 Full Review Audience Member With both men in the love triangle seemed to have no redeeming qualities. It seemed a flaw in the plot that Mary would want to get involved with either of them. Perhaps events in Chicago, which led to her return, might explain, but we are left in the dark. The lack of character development made the plot seem silly, but I enjoyed watching it to see what Ava Gardner made of the role. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member called noir-sorry i disagree Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member classic Eva Gardner and George Raft Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member unless your a die hard Ava Gardner fan I'd say stay away.
