In Boston, unemployed actress Marie Smith (Margot Grahame) finds a disoriented man (Walter Abel) sitting on a park bench. He can't remember anything and is maybe connected to a recent murder.
After watching the 1945 remake first, this has essentially the same plot. The difference being that this movie plays it straight up without the comedy. It starts without a bloody head wound which helps excuse why Marie doesn't take him to the hospital. It also helps that she's not driving a cab. Being on foot allows them to not go directly for medical or police help. The movie's tone is a lot simpler without the comedic screwball fun but that's also the best part of the 1945 movie for me. All in all, it's a good start which slowly gets to the conclusion. It's not the most compelling but it has some good elements.
