As a train speeds through the Arizona night, a man posing as a physician holds up the baggage-car crew and escapes with a $500,000 payroll. The fake doctor, Paul Bruckner, leaves the train with his "patient" and the "patient's wife", who is really Bruckner's wife Linda. The insurance company puts its best investigator, Charlie Norman, on the case to work with the railroad's investigator, Joe Armstrong. The men are friends and Joe is upset that Charlie and his wife, Ruth, will have to postpone their Mexico vacation. Charlie's concern goes beyond the spoiled vacation as he was the brains behind the holdup, who had fallen in love with Linda several months earlier while investigating a claim Bruckner had filed against his insurance company. At first, Joe is unable to find anything out about the flawlessly timetable planning for the robbery other than what Charlie wants him to find out. Written by

Did You Know?
The aircraft in the scene where Joe and Charlie go to the airport is a 1940 Waco UPF-7, tail number N30107. About 600 were built between 1937 and 1942. Many were used as trainers during WWII. As of 2016 this plane's registration is still active, possibly indicating it is still flying. See more
At the end of the film, when Joe shoots Charlie, he fires way to the left of Charlie. There is no way that his bullet would have hit Charlie with that aim. See more
