The Badger Game Gone Wrong
Liz Fraser and Peter Reynolds have been playing the badger game. She lures a man with some money to her room, and he breaks in on them, playing the angry husband. She wants out, but is persuaded to give it one more go. She lures drunken Tony Wickert up, but Kenneth Griffith calls her, and asks how she's going to clear up the mess in the bedroom. It's Reynolds' bloody corpse. She persuaded Wickert to take the corpse, drive into the country and bury it, while she packs to leave town. Wickert, drunk, attracts the attention of the police, and abandons the car. When he sobers up, he goes to his friends for help. He and Miss Fraser have the police looking for them.... and Griffith.
There's no mystery here, but it is a pretty tight little suspense story, largely from Wickert's viewpoint. There's some nice. Owes of St. Pancras Station, and it's good to seeMiss Fraser, usually cast as a ditzy blonde, doing some acting in a minor but nicely run drama.
