A potentially violent screenwriter is a murder suspect until his lovely neighbor clears him. But she begins to have doubts.

You get to a lonely place in the road, and you begin to squeeze...
In Dixon's apartment, after Mildred picks up the book from the floor, she holds it with her right hand with the front cover facing away from her, while keeping her purse in her left hand. Soon after, as Dixon approaches her, she moves her right hand toward the top of the book with the cover still facing away. The next shot suddenly shows her left hand resting on top of her right hand, which is back toward the bottom of the book, and the book's front cover is now facing towards her.
