    Where the Sidewalk Ends
    Dana Andrews is brutal metropolitan police detective Dixon, who despises all criminals because his father had been one. When the cops pick up two-bit gambler Ken Paine (Craig Stevens) as a murder suspect, Dixon subjects Paine to the third degree -- and accidentally kills him. In disposing of the body, Dixon inadvertently places the blame for the killing on cab driver Jiggs Taylor (Tom Tully). Having fallen in love with Jigg's daughter, Morgan (Gene Tierney), Dixon tries to clear the cabbie without implicating himself, but ultimately he becomes trapped in a web of his own making; luckily Morgan promises to stand by him. Where the Sidewalk Ends was adapted from a novel by William L. Stuart; its director was Otto Preminger, who'd previously put Andrews and Tierney through their paces in Laura (1944). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      Dana Andrews at his steeliest, Gene Tierney at her loveliest, Garry Merrill at his slickest, what more do you need? There isn't a false note in the entire picture (Karl Malden is trying a little too hard but he comes through in the end). The plot is one of those classic noir stories where a corrupt/lost man makes a bad choice and yet finds redemption by the final reel. Highly recommended. The DVD is stellar. The picture is crisp and clear, retaining the great black and white cinematography. The movie just glows. And the sound is excellent as well.
