What if she's right - he didn't do it, and they give him the chair?
Suppose they do? What difference does it make? There's too many people in the world anyway.
What's the use of talking to you? You think everything's a joke.

Taut, weird psychothriller centers on a novice newsman who's been promoted because of stories connected to a murder to which he's the only witness. His testimony gets the innocent man (Cook, Jr.) convicted, as he discovers when his neighbor is killed by the same man (Lorre) -- who the police refuse to believe exists. In fact, our hero is now suspect #1 in the crime he was covering. His loyal girlfriend, god bless her soul, sets out to track Lorre down, even though she's never seen him.
Good low-budget noir, VERY short. Excellent photography, very odd dream sequences.
