Soldiers demobilized at the nation's capital in the wake of WWII live mostly at night in seedy bars and playing poker. Three of them chill at a man's apartment and the man turns up dead; evidence points to an obvious suspect but no motive. As the homosexuality in Brooks' novel was out of the question in a 1947 production, the murder victim is Jewish here. Excellent film noir; received Oscar nominations for Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor and Actress, Best Director, and Best Screenplay.
