After a bender on the waterfront, longshoreman Bobo (great French star Jean Gabin) fears he may have committed murder and quickly finds work on a remote barge, where he rescues beautiful waitress Anna (Ida Lupino) from suicide. As love blooms for the pair, Bobo's shady friend Tiny (Thomas Mitchell) uses the murder as blackmail in this melancholy drama, scripted by novelist John O'Hara. Cinematographer Charles G. Clarke was nominated for an Oscar.
