Classic film noir starring Robert Mitchum and Robert Ryan. When Jewish GI Joseph Samuels (Sam Levene) is beaten to death, detective Finlay (Robert Young) is appointed to investigate. He discovers that Samuels was last seen with soldiers Montgomery (Ryan), Mitchell (George Cooper), Bowers (Steve Brodie) and LeRoy (William Phipps). Each claims only to vaguely remember meeting Samuels in a nightclub, but when Mitchell's cap and wallet are found in the dead man's apartment, it seems that he is guilty of murder. Mitchell's friend, Sergeant Keeley (Mitchum), springs to his defence, and helps Finlay crack the case. The film, Hollywood's first to depict anti-semitism, was nominated for five Academy Awards.
