Dr. Cross, a psychiatrist, is treating a young woman, Janet Stewart, who is in a coma-state, brought on when she heard loud arguing, went to her window and saw a man strike his wife with a candlestick and kill her. As she comes out of her shock, she recognizes Dr. Cross as the killer. He takes her to his sanitarium and urged by his nurse/lover, Elaine Jordan, gives Janet an overdose of insulin. But he can't bring himself to murder her in cold blood and asks Elaine to get the medicine to save her. She refuses, they argue, and he strangles her. He saves Janet's life, but now faces two murder charges. Written by

Lt. Paul Stewart:
Well, if you give Janet this insulin, how certain can you be it'll help her?
Dr. Richard Cross:
I'm neither a miracle man nor a prophet, Lieutenant. If medicine were an exact science, not an art, I might be able to tell you.

Not bad as these things go, but could have been much better
A terrific idea achieves only middling results, mainly do to the very low budget. A woman waiting at a hotel for her husband to return from a World War II prison camp witnesses a murder, and the next morning, her husband finds her in a state of shock. So the hotel psychiatric (did most hotels have them back then?) is called in to treat her, but he's the killer. And he uses his profession to cover up the crime. So far, so good. Than the audience spends the rest of the film waiting for someone to say or do something interesting. No such luck, and even the ending is dull. Just a lot of cheap sets, grainy photography, and idle chat. However, Vincent Price does give a effectively sinister performance, and the positive response to this role helped put his career on the path for which he is best-known.
