Smart-talking Ann Sheridan, still under contract at Warners but already beginning the long slide that would land her on Another World in the 60s, provides most of the oomph in this noirish 1947 melodrama about illicit romance in San Francisco. An uptight physician and family man (Kent Smith) treats a cynical nightclub singer who’s been hit by a cab (Sheridan) and soon finds himself fabricating excuses about staying late at the office so he can slip down to Fisherman’s Wharf and catch her act. Vincent Sherman directed this absorbing programmer, from the days when you could still bum a smoke off your doctor while lying on the examining table. With Robert Alda, Bruce Bennett, and Rosemary DeCamp. 111 min.
