Movie Info

After witnessing a murder, Frank Johnson goes on the run to avoid being killed himself. His wife, Eleanor (Ann Sheridan), seems almost apathetic about finding him when questioned by Investigator Harris (Robert Keith), due to a marriage on the rocks. However, after learning that Frank has a grave heart condition, Eleanor recruits reporter Dan Leggett (Dennis O'Keefe) to help track down Frank. Discovering new love for her husband along the way, Eleanor must get to Frank before the killer does.

Audience Reviews for Woman on the Run

  • Sep 22, 2019
    A treasure that was almost lost to Noir fans if not for the efforts of film preservationists. Shot in San Francisco, Woman On The Run, is a brisk story of a man who witnesses a murder and goes into hiding when he learns the mob is behind the crime. His estranged wife fails to cooperate with police, but instead searches for him herself. The climatic scene is very well filmed by Orson Welles protege, Norman Foster. But, it's the lead performance by Ann Sheridan that is the biggest winner.

    Ann Sheridan leads this noir effort as the wife of a man who accidentally witnesses a murder and she hopes to find him after he goes underground. Dennis O'Keefe is a reporter helping. Can they find her estranged husband before the murderer gets him? Lots of great shots of old San Francisco add depth and color. Tension in the Urban Paradise Now.

    Wonderfully tough little known noir with a terrifically tense climax.
