Storyline

Hal Weston arrives in Los Angeles in search of his ex-wife Nora Petrie, whose current husband, Petrie, once a partner with Weston in the import business, recently died. Nora divorced Hal shortly after Petrie, who was using the firm as a front for smuggling dope, escaped from the New York police. Weston contacts Osgood, a former employee of Petrie's, and asks him to aid in the search for Nora. In the Oriental section of L.A., he learns from Li Sheng that Nora was a dope addict. Also learning that Nora had plans of going to the Orient on her husband's insurance money, he discovers that the picture on her passport belongs to another woman. He confronts Dr. Sheng, Li Sheng's father, about Petrie's death certificate. Later, receiving a call from Dr. Sheng to meet him at the Observatory, Weston is attacked by two thugs but escapes. Li Sheng is waiting for him and accuses him of murdering her father. Nora's body has been discovered in Petrie's coffin,proving to Weston that Petrie killed Nora...

Ingenious sixties thriller on a budget.
2 March 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The pick of Maury Dexter's Associated producers' support movies, this one anticipates better known, big budget titles like EXPERIMENT IN TERROR and POINT BLANK.

From it's negative panels opening titles, WOMANHUNT is not the expected rush job put together by film makers more interested in the clock than the exercise of imagination. The twisty air port arrival and cemetery opening, the Chinatown setting and the ingenious split screen ending all surprise. Piccaro/Peck (SOME CAME RUNNING), Lisa Lu (EMPRESS DOWAGER) and Berry Kroeger (ACT OF VIOLENCE) confirm their substantial talents.

Having Floyd Crosby on camera wasn't bad news either.
