Storyline

In the midst of a heated quarrel, a man lifts up the fireplace poker in his hand and brings it down on his wife, who drops to the floor. She's dead. The man puts her body in the trunk of his car and drives off, hoping to find somewhere to dispose of it. If he thought his wife was a nag, she'll seem like sweetness and light compared to a motorcycle cop, who stops him and insists he fix his broken taillight. Written by J. Spurlin

Some Classic Hitchcock Elements
16 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a a mini-version of many of the Hitchcock thrillers. The murder is committed and becomes the pivotal act. We don't know anything about the victim other than she seems to be a virago. David Wayne obviously has had enough and kills her. He moves her to the trunk of his car and spends the entire episode seeking a place to dump the body. What he doesn't count on is a broken tail light and Javert type motorcycle patrolman (second prize winner in a Rod Steiger look-alike contest) who insists that it get fixed immediately. Unfortunately, changing a bulb doesn't do the job. There is a short and to repair it they must get into the trunk. Hitchcock is great at getting us caught up in the plight of the poor boob who has pretty much closed the door to any hopeful outcome. We do actually root for him all the way; why can't that damned cop leave him alone? Of course, the fates take over and we really know what will eventually happen.
