A man tells his wife that the police are after him for having killed a bookie during an alcoholic binge, but that he is innocent and is being framed for the murder. The wife and her brother hide him and try to find out who the real killer was. The more they investigate, the more holes they begin to find in the husband's story. Written by
this films deals with the tribulations of one mans attempts to flee the scene of the crime and his wife's attempts to assist him. at first, we see a visible shaken individual, begging his wife to offer him asstense in getting out of the country(the united kingdom) however, as his wife helps his endeavors, she finds that the more she uncovers, the more incredulous the husbands story becomes. being Mona's biggest fans, I brought this film on e-bay. it's difficult to come by. it is enjoyable, however, I felt Mona was out of place(from a positive perspective) in this film. first of all, why is she in London? her husband does not have any grandiose job of any kind and they have no relatives there. in other words, unlike her film, I was a shoplifter(1950) which takes place in California, we have no familiarity with the environment. British constabularies methods do not jibe here. we need to see people and places we can relate to. of course, the reason they made the film overseas is because it's cheaper. Mona is wonderful of course, she even drives a truck(that's a turn on in my book) if you enjoy Mona you should enjoy this film. David Hayden char, SC
