POSTER TAGLINE & DESCRIPTION
"The Man Hunt No Woman's Kisses Could Stop! He's the only one that came out alive ... and now he wants my life ... to atone for the others". An embittered, vengeful POW stalks his former commanding officer who betrayed his men's planned escape attempt from a Nazi prison camp. Fred Zinnemann's only film noir and also a rare MGM foray into the genre, this excellent thriller is one of the best 'damaged serviceman returns home from the war to a changed world' film noirs - see also Henry Hathaway's The Dark Corner (1946) and John Cromwell's Dead Reckoning (1947), for example The A-list cast give the film real class.
