Yes, we saw this 41-year-old movie just after we saw the 59-year-old version of the same movie.
The movies are quite different though. The 1964 version, I'd wager, is less comprehensible; unlike the 1946 version, I'm pretty sure they never get around to explaining why the hit men got their original assignment.
Interesting trivia: this was Ronald Reagan's last movie, and he plays the bad guy, and gets to slap Angie Dickinson around. Well, once you've done that, I guess there's nothing left to do in show biz; you might as well go into politics.
This is probably the daffiest role Clu Galager ever played.
