Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"... something of a B+ movie, a low-budget treatment of Raymond Chandler's "The High Window" made with ambition and style, at least in key scenes."
‑ Sean Axmaker, GreenCine
"Entertaining on its own merits as a B-grade thriller, but certainly not the best film version of a Raymond Chandler novel."
‑ Phil Hall, Film Threat
"It's just smart enough of a film noir to be considered a classic."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
