The classic, great “Film-noir” crime drama directed by Ida Lupino



Two men (Edmond O’Brien and Frank Lovejoy) on a fishing trip pick up a hitchhiker named Emmett Myers (William Talman), who turns out to be a psychopath who has committed multiple murders.


Critical reception:

“The New York Times” April 30, 1953: “An unrelenting but superficial study of abnormal psychology coupled with standard chase melodrama, it moves swiftly to an obvious conclusion. For this story of a callous killer and the two innocent vacationers he uses on a wild flight from justice through Mexico, builds its tension slowly and carefully but is incapable of maintaining it throughout.  Although Collier Young and Ida Lupino, who wrote the script of their independent production, avoid unnecessary dialogue and preambles to action, it is only a temporary suspense they create. However, Miss Lupino’s brisk direction and the solid portrayals by the three principals overcome, to a large degree, the film’s cops-versus-killer format.  William Talman, as the ruthless murderer, makes the most of one of the year’s juiciest assignments. He is a braggart, who taunts his captives, mocks their softness and proclaims that “you can get anything at the end of a gun.” Both Edmond O'Brien and Frank Lovejoy are experts as stalwart men gripped in a situation they never made. Although he is a normally brave citizen, Edmond O’Brien is human enough to break down in frustration over his seemingly impossible position. And Frank Lovejoy’s fortitude under this sort of duress appears logical, too. They may be trapped into a terrifying trip but their terrors become less frightening along the way.”


Please read all the details of this listing so you know exactly what you are buying.
