Originally unsuccessful upon it's theatrical release it is now considered one of the classic examples of FilmNoir and later cited as influential among directors of the FrenchNewWave and also Creator/QuentinTarantino when he made ''Film/PulpFiction''.

* ForbiddenFruit: Soberin repeatedly warns Gabrielle against opening the box containing the "Great Whatsit", telling her that it contains something that is both extremely dangerous and way out of her comprehension. It eventually drives Gabrielle to double-cross him just so she can have a look inside it.

* AdaptationalVillainy: This film did not do Mike Hammer any favors. Whereas in the books Hammer was merely a standard Private Eye (JerkAss at points but otherwise good), this movie made him a goddamn sadist! He's honestly not much better than the people he's up against.
