Director Fritz Lang pulled out all the film making stops and gave us one finely honed film noir, with richly defined characters and an interwoven plot that makes The Big Heat one of the must see film noirs.

As things progressively get worse and more personal, he loses touch with his calm demeanour and starts to become Marvin plays his usual salty self, becoming notorious for his thuggish inflicting of pain and disfigurement on any woman who irks him; this extends to Grahame as his long-suffering girlfriend, whose involvement with Ford's investigation and treatment by Marvin prompts her to do an about-face and become a more interesting character than Ford's fairly by-the-book character (both in terms of professional ethics and character development).
