The Devil Thumbs a Ride (1947)
Obviously North hasn't seen the more recent genre of psychopathic hitchhikers, or he would never have picked up Tierney on his way home. He also picks up two female hitchhikers later. When he stops for gas, the attendant recognizes Tierney as a man wanted for robbing a theatre and killing the manager. The police pursue and eventually get their man, but not before there is bloodshed and terror along the way for the innocents with him.

Critic Reviews for The Devil Thumbs a Ride
Lawrence Tierney's particular brand of sinister menace makes this "B" film one of the most jaw-dropping, startling examples of film noir I've ever seen.
This programmer from RKO has most of the things you'd expect from a low-budget noir, and just enough innovation to please the casual fan.
