Mr. and Mrs. Loomis are two newlyweds who have recently endured a family tragedy and are now having bad luck on their honeymoon. Their car has a flat tire -- and so does the spare. A stranger named Mr. Moon passes by and fixes the tire. But this Good Samaritan proves to be a crackpot. Mr. Loomis trips and falls onto Moon, dirtying his white suit. The man becomes enraged and threatens to kill him, before driving off. Later, the couple arrive at their hotel. And they realize their bad luck has gotten worse when the crackpot is in the suite right next to theirs. Written by J. Spurlin

Just Don't Think About It Too Much
10 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Because I was willing to step back and enjoy the fun, I won't turn on the utter ridiculousness of the plot. Instead, it pulls us along as long as we accept Mr. Moon as a sociopath. As characters are reeled in, so are we. The performance of Ray Emhardt, one of Hitchcock's favorites, makes the whole thing. He threatens, backs off, frightens, annoys, confronts, all with that big round Sidney Greenstreet face. I do have to say that the young woman is a bit dense. She says things like, "If he wanted to shoot you, he could have done it anytime." The fact that there would be any shooting doesn't seem to faze her very much. She is caught up in this honeymoon (which apparently she has been waiting a long time for) and damn it, no-one is going to mess it up. Even her husband. My advice, however, is to just enjoy the fun.
