The print is quite damaged,really 'average image',black levels were 'good' from time to time,sharp also,and the audio track is quite damaged also. It's uneven in spots, with some softness and scratches and a few bad frame.
Really average but watchable print for a good Film!
The film source print is in need of restoration for sure!.
RECOMMENDED!

This is a rare 1947 thriller with two great stars, Flynn and Stanwyck, working together for the only time. They're always wonderful to watch, but the film itself is a standard "B-movie" thriller. A widow arrives at the home of her late husband's creepy family to claim his estate, and she's given a chilly welcome. Determined to stay and face down the opposition, she soon realizes that something sinister is going on (locked rooms, strange noises in the night, etc.), and that she may be in danger. But the film is less interesting than it sounds, and the final explanation behind the mystery is a letdown (it's also dated and somewhat offensive). The Warner Archive DVD-R is a decent print of a rare title, and fans of the two stars will probably enjoy it just for them.

        As a thriller, it was adequate, but fans of
        Flynn and Stanwcyk will enjoy this- they look
        great and their acting is great.

                Engaging mystery noir, a little confusing at the end. The strained relationship between Stanwyck and Flynn's characters almost gets in the way, but sums up with an improbable ending.

                  If you aren't familiar with the story, I think it will be suspenseful to you. I found the characters emotions toward each other flipped too easily between disdain and trust. I did enjoy the movie overall.

                      This is an awesome movie and I'm glad WB Archive offers almost forgotten but superb classic movies such as "Cry Wolf!" This idea is thrilling for avid older and classic movie fans such as me.
