Initially dismissed by critics (they always had a love-hate relationship with Welles), the film slowly found admiration over the years.  It is now heralded as one of the most popular classic-era noir films and considered to be some of Welles’s best work. The film was shot mostly in Venice, California with distinctive cinematography by Russell Metty.
