Muller does most of the talking here whilst Wise makes the occasionally separately recorded comment. Muller discusses RKO film noir, Wise as director, script and dialogue, casting, performance, costumes, locations/sets, the screenwriters, score, title change, and the film's reception. He highlights what he sees as the film's weaknesses, and is scene-specific with some pauses. Best part is Muller's anecdotes about a screening of the film with Lawrence Tierney as his guest.
