Jacques Tourneur directs this definitive noir classic (remade in 1984 as Against All Odds) about a trio to reckon with -- troubled private investigator Jeff Bailey (Robert Mitchum), drop-dead beauty Kathie Moffat (Jane Greer) and moneyed mobster Whit Sterling (Kirk Douglas). Bailey is hired to find the missing Moffat, who is Sterling's former mistress. But when he finally locates her, the unexpected occurs.
