RARA-AVIS: Goodis - The Unfaithful

The other day I taped the 1947 film THE UNFAITHFUL off of Turner Classic Movies, I wanted to catch it mainly because the description sounded interesting. Imagine my surprise to find that it was co-written by David Goodis.

It had noirish elements but I don't know if I'd classify it as film noir. It also dealt with infidelity and husbands-away-at-war in ways that I don't know if I've seen in older films. It was a little slow-moving and a little too long (but that might be because I was tired when I watched it). Overall I'm glad I saw it, but I wouldn't call it spectacular.

Has anyone else seen this movie and have any opinions?
