Three New York models, Schatze, Pola, and Loco sublet a luxury penthouse apartment with a plan: they are tired of cheap men and a lack of money, so they'll use all their talents to trap and marry millionaires. The trouble is that it's not so easy to tell the rich men from the hucksters. Recent divorcee Schatze meets real-estate mogul Tom, but thinks he looks like a gas station attendant. Loco gets involved with a married man, but falls for forest ranger Eben.

So which is better: to marry for love or money?

Nobody lives forever ( visu )
2 editions published between 1946 and 2012 in English and held by 42 libraries worldwide
"Jean Negulesco continues his classic run of forties film noirs with this tale of a con artist who falls for the mark he is trying to fleece. The great John Garfield commands the screen as grifter Nick Blake, who returns to New York after the war, only to find heartache and betrayal. Heading west, Nick hooks up with fellow con men Pop (Walter Brennan) and Doc (George Coulouris), who need a Romeo to sweep recently widowed Gladys Halvorsen (Geraldine Fitzgerald) off her feet and out of her sizable inheritance. But it's Nick who starts falling, and now that he wants out of the scam, will that fall turn into a dive? Or will Gladys pay the price for Nick's change of heart? Garfield is his usual astonishing self, but it's Fitzgerald who proves a revelation, as she stabs at the heart of noir's darkness by perfectly impersonating pure innocence. Faye Emerson plays the fatale, as Nick's sultry ex."--Container
