Tight Spot Reviews:

Ginger Rogers is nice as the tough-talking girl sprung from prison to testify in a trial. What a strange career she had! Greatest known for her films with Fred Astaire, she was also a delicious comedienne. She did some serious work in her prime, winning an Oscar for an only-OK soap opera. But she's nice in "Primrose Path." She turned tough in many of her fifties outings, and she looked tough too. Here she has sort of a pixie haircut that doesn't quite work with the hero and isn't flattering to her. But she's excellent.Edward G. Robinson, billed second to her, is superb. He everytime was. That boy was incapable of giving a terrible performance, no matter how oddly cast he might have been at times. Brian Keith, whom many know for sunny outings in soon television, is exceptional as a very tough cop. He really is the focus of this movie, though the Rogers hero is the lead.Who in the globe was Lucy Marlow, who got fourth billing? It tells prison girl. Hmm. The girl testing the matron, Katherine Anderson, is necessary to the plot. She is very touching as well.Lorne Green is other actor who played some mean hombres before he became the benevolent dad on TV's "Bonanza." His hero is less nuanced than the one he plays in "Autumn Leaves." But he does well by it.Phil Karlson was an perfect director, who had some of the nastiest, darkest, roughest noirs of the fifties under his belt. This is among the greatest of them.


As a large fanatic of Ginger Rogers', I think this film, although late in her career, is rather good. Of course with Edgar G. Robinson as the district attorney, there's no method this should be bad. The opening prison laundry scenes are more than a tiny difficult to trust (after all, when was the last time you were in prison with perfectly manicured nails). Over all, drama and comedy nicely balanced.


Ginger Rogers sheds her usual film methods and portrays a woman surviving a sentence for hiding a criminal. She is offered her freedom if she will testify vs someone who the government is trying to get. Trouble is that her ex-boyfriend has already taken a fatal bullet on his method to testify.Edward G. Robinson is the D.A. here in this exciting film. There is a marvelous helping performance by Brian Keith, as the cop, assigned to watch her. Naturally, romance blooms and there is quite a surprise waiting for viewers when we realize who he really is in this film.Here is a woman saying those in prison to hold their mouths shut and do as tiny as possible. "Never volunteer" is her motto. How quickly the case and her beliefs change.As Sherry Conley, Rogers depicts a woman whose environment led her astray. The movie is well worth catching.
