Sue Heal (Radio Times)
This is a suitably jaunty tale about an ex-con, played with convincing guile by Jane Greer, who dearly wishes to go straight but is not helped to that end when she falls for her parole officer's boyfriend. There's a sizeable amount of charm inserted into the rather lame script, which succeeds in saving the day. Greer is excellent, as is Dennis O'Keefe as the love interest in question, and the two interact with just the right amount of spice. It's also notable for the screen debut of Jeff Bridges as a babe in arms. Not a film to make you cancel any previous arrangements, but it passes an idle hour or two.
