Time Out says

Originally made in 3-D, this unpretentious and very enjoyable RKO thriller has Mitchum as a prizefighter helping out ex-gangster's moll Darnell in Mexico, where she is being stalked by hired killer Palance. Far from noir, given the simplicity of the plot and the lack of romantic pessimism, it nevertheless works very well thanks to the assured performances (the luscious Darnell makes a lovely companion for the similarly statuesque Mitchum), and to a genuinely exciting climax aboard a broken-down cable car.
