Time Out says

After a couple of years under the Hollywood blacklist cloud, Dmytryk returned to the fray with this low-budget offering for producer Stanley Kramer, shot on location in the self-consciously realist Naked City style then making waves. Franz doesn't quite convince as the psycho obsessively drawn to taking fatal potshots at passing brunettes, but Menjou, one of the movies' great professionals, registers his involvement as the cop on his tail. Good use of the streets of San Francisco, and you can see the film's influence on Peter Bogdanovich's rather artsier 1967 offering Targets.
