This film was made in the wrong era. It should have been made in the '40s. This film seemed to be out of time and place. The wonderful twists in plot and stories and the never ending drive in its pace towards the final conclusion is just wonderful. For being such a low budget film, it was finely crafted and well-made. Since it is against the policy of IMDB, I cannot give away its ending, but it does make a comment that no matter how smart or brilliant one may be, yet one does not have it all figured out. Watching this film for the first time on Masterpiece Theater, many years ago was a religious experience. Most of the items on Masterpiece seemed to be too intellectual for me or beyond my experience, but this film was exceptional. Finally, the film's conclusion is this, 1. One does pay for one's sins in this life (There is no forgiveness). 2. Robert Burns' poem "Mice and Men" rings true here.
