When love turns to rage… the consequences are deadly! This slam-bang drama of troubled love, murder and unique revenge in a sleazy nightclub is a noir classic filled with suspense, dramatic punch and a macabre demonstration of a wildly jealous man who is bent on ruining two lives. Jefferson Robbins (Richard Widmark, Yellow Sky) owns a roadhouse near the Canadian border that is managed by his playboy buddy Pete Morgan (Cornel Wilde, Storm Fear) and cashier Susie Smith (Celeste Holm, All About Eve). After a trip to Chicago, Robbins brings back Lily Stevens (Ida Lupino, On Dangerous Ground), a chanteuse with whom he is obviously smitten. When Robbins goes on a hunting trip with some pals and plans to ask Lily to marry him upon his return… Pete and Lily share some intimate time together and fall in love. The news sends Robbins into a psychopathic tailspin, beginning a game of endless brutality, making the lovers suffer for their betrayal. Directed by Jean Negulesco (Daddy Long Legs, Three Strangers).
