A great Black & White Suspense Film, I came upon it because its on a list of Ross Elliott Films, He doesn't play a big part, but the actors that do are great. Ann Sheridan is a doll. Her Husband is out walking the dog when he sees a Murder, but he goes into hiding because he knows the killer, and the killer is after him. The killer poses as a newspaper man who teams up with Ann to track down her husband, unknowing to Ann. Ann doesn?t like her husband much until she starts searching for him and finds out he truly loves her. Everything a Black & White Movie Should Be, 4 Stars and added to the collection. Should you rent it or Buy it, You better do one or the other you will not be sorry.
