(OK) Better movie than plot (too poor for being the only Raymond Chandler screenplay), but the match Veronica Ladd is ok and Bendix composes a moving veteran...

Ex-Navy pilot Johnny Morrison returns home from the war to discover his wife is a tramp and an alcoholic, who's been having an affair with a local nightclub owner. After she tells him their son died in an accident caused by her drinking, Johnny leaves her in disgust. Next day Johnny finds out her wife has been murdered, and he's the prime suspect. Now Johnny has to find the real killer before the cops get to him.

"A classic film noir. A returning war veteran comes home to find that his wife has cheated on him. He storms off in the pouring rain where he is picked up by a woman in a car. He finds out that his wife has been murdered and he is the prime suspect. He tries to evade the law and some gangsters to find out who killed her. This is another Alan Ladd/Veronica Lake movie (their third of the decade) but William Bendix steals the show as a G.I. who suffered brain damage during the war. Doris Dowling is"
