In addition to leading man Van Heflin, the film also features Kirk Douglas in his film debut, as a weak-willed type he’d never play again:

The dark, twisting noir delight is directed by Lewis Milestone, known for helming All Quiet on the Western Front (1930), Ocean’s 11 (1961), and Mutiny on the Bounty (1962).

So celebrate Valentine’s Day and/or Single Awareness Day as you will, and then indulge your noir addiction with #BNoirDetour at 9pm EST!
