The City of Chicago is gripped by an Axe Murderer. The streets are empty at night as there has been six murders and six people have been caught, but they are lunatics. Only one person has lived to tell about it and that was Edwina, who is as dumb as a brick. If it were not for Oliver, she would be number seven. When there is a second attempt on Edwina, Oliver figures that the crimes are not random and that someone is hypnotizing these people to do his bidding, but the police and Edwina are skeptical.

A tidy, direct, edge-of-the seat romantic thriller. Ayres is good, as always, and Day is fine. The other star-billed player is a bit of cheat, as we don't see him till the final 15 minutes or so; but it's OK.
This movie recalls "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari" and presages "North By northwest": The supposedly crazy, or at least uninformed, people are the good guys; while the bad guy is the one looked up to by the general populace.
