Nicholas Ray's directorial debut was this moving and poetic version of Thieves Like Us, a dark combination of gangster movie and love story. Described in the credits as the tale of a boy and girl who 'were never properly introduced to the world we live in', the film was a great critical success and established Ray as a major American director.
