Reviews of the Uneasy TermsA solid cast and acting combined with a twisty noir mystery plot compensate for a presentation that at times is stagy, static and conversation-laden. I've watched this twice at widely separate times and found it entertaining as a mystery, not a thriller. It does devolve at times into a series of one room-bound conversation after another.
Looking tall and thin, Michael Rennie plays a private eye named "Slim Callaghan". He's beyond self-confident and has a ready charm and smile to draw out the ladies. Doing much of his legwork is fast-talking Paul Carpenter. In a bow to "The Maltese Falcon", the secretary is named Effie. No shrinking violet, she's Joy Shelton. Into the office comes a nervous and concerned Faith Brook, the eldest of three sisters. The problem turns out to be one that mixes an inheritance, blackmail and then the murder of their stepfather, virtually while Rennie is on the premises. Rennie has sort of a friendly but combative nemesis in the form of a Scotland Yard inspector, Barry Jones. Rennie has a habit of bending the rules but finding evidence that solves cases and passing it on to Jones's benefit, but Jones hectors him nonetheless with threats.
The youngest sister is Patricia Goddard. The middle sister is Moira Lister. One obituary of her said "She was an actress whose name evoked keen anticipation of a sharply etched, value-for-money performance, and as recently as 2002 she was still commanding the stage in a sterling revival of Maugham's The Constant Wife, as the mother aghast that her daughter should react with such stoicism to her husband's infidelity. Always elegant and meticulously groomed..." This is true in this movie. She stands out in a sharply-etched role in which she is elegant and meticulously groomed.
For a heavy, we have an actor who is versatile. He can portray a man who upholds the law or breaks the law and be equally convincing in either role, and this is Nigel Patrick, playing a shady night club/gambling club owner.
I don't think that this one has been remastered and reissued on DVD. It really should be.
