* FilmNoir: This is a classic example, although one might consider it a gangster film or pre-noir, as many consider the genre to have been defined with ''Film/TheMalteseFalcon''. Historians cite it as a GenreTurningPoint, in that it was when the 30s gangster film became Noir, noting the greater psychological focus and the symbolism (which generally defined noir) separated it from the 30s gangster films, which were more focused on social opinions of urban crime rather than exploring character motivations.
* MeaningfulName: Roy Earle is a reference to Theatre/KingLear, (Earle is a semi-anagrame for Leare, and Roy is French for King). About the only thing in common was the theme of growing old and the longing for OneLastJob.
