Homes, Geoffrey: Build My Gallows High (Out od the Past)(19.02.09)
it is no wonder that the film is as highly praised as it is since the author of the book provided the screenplay which allowed Robert Mitchum and Jane Greer to give such memorable performances. The book must rate as one of the foremost of the genre - a complicated story of double cross wuth its roots in the past played out against a tender love story with the unfortunate but inevitable ending. Both the direct action and the interspersed almost lyrical descriptive passages are the work of a master craftsman.
