excellent film noir directed by Orson Wells about a crooked cop trying to frame a man for murder and in the meantime trying to destroy the career and marriage of a Mexican cop who is also investigating the same murder. It sounds a little convoluted, and it is, but this is a perfect example of film noir and how to make a good movie.
Wells plays the corrupt cop and Charlton Heston is the Mexican cop who has a gorgeous wife played by Janet Leigh, and has to tangle with Wells' Quinlan character.
Lots of cover ups and double crosses in this one and a plot and great dialogue that a true film fan would love. I highly recommend this film, it is one of the greats.
