The Big Heat (1953)

And it reminded me a lot of Out of the Past with Robert Mitchum: decent but not GREAT but held in high esteem...

There are some definite quality (such as Lee Marvin being evil and Gloria Grahame being adorable) and definite things to analyze (such as the oft-mentioned quality about how Bannion is almost a reverse-femme fetale where he's completely willing to have as many women die for him as need be...), but overall, not that memorable...7/10
