| Recently released convict is accused of his girlfriend's murder and goes on the run with the assistance of a truck driver while searching for the true killer.
Nice crime thriller that almost seems like a lost Hitchcock film. Moody lighting contributes to the noirish atmoshpere. Ernest Thesiger turns in one of his creepiest performances.
