Nobody Lives Forever

Garfield is the New York con-man, semi-reformed by wartime service as an army NCO, who goes to Los Angeles to 'rest', but is there tempted to swindle the innocent Fitzgerald of the inheritance left to her by her late husband. Predictable but well-acted Warners yarn, scripted by WR Burnett, with a horribly sugary conversion scene in a chapel at Capistrano, but a memorable finish on a fogbound pier in which the radiantly beautiful Fitzgerald, kidnapped by jibberingly psychotic Coulouris, seems somehow to transcend her oil-stained surroundings.
