Woozy Robert Mitchum -- smitten with desire for deceitful Faith Domergue and walloped in the head with a fireplace poker by her hubby (Claude Rains) -- journeys Where Danger Lives when the would-be lovebirds go on the lam. Ahead is Mexico, miles back is the husband's corpse. But the final destination for the illicit pair could be a dead end in this dark diamond directed by John Farrow (The Big Clock). Noir favorite Audrey Totter (The Set-Up) two-times her devoted milquetoast spouse (Richard Basehart), and the Tension mounts as he plots revenge, then sees his plan take an unexpected turn. Cyd Charisse, Barry Sullivan and William Conrad costar in a bitter tale of the postwar American dream frayed into nightmare.
