Claudia Rankin's husband of one hour is murdered after they stop on an isolated road. When the police appear, to her, to be taking their time about finding the killer, Claudia changes her name and appearance and starts her own investigation. Her disappearance becomes a problem for the Missing Person Department, and they track her down. They also discover just how close she is to the solution of her husband's murder, and the location of a gang of car hijackers who operate in remote "lover's lanes." Written by Les Adams <>

One more typical Republic movie

A standard Republic thriller. Short one: 61mn, fast paced programmer, with no extra length, and a topic we have seen a thousand times before.

A young woman sees her husband killed by car thieves and decides to avenge him by collaborating with the police. With predictable results.

Penny Edwards is the usual actress for those flicks. I've already seen her in lots of B movies from this era and produced by Republic studios.

Philip Ford, the director, has the same gift as the others of the Republic such as George Blair, early RG Springsteen, Harry Keller, Tommy Carr or Lesley Selander. Directors who essentially made B westerns, and perfectly got everything under control.

What can we expect more from this kind of features?
