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

A worn-out exercise in suspense
8 May 2006 | by (Paris, Fr) – See all my reviews

Story: man kills wife then puts her in the trunk to dispose of the corpse in some a deep swamp. But there's a zealous motorcycle patrolman on his way and fate (morals) is definitely tough with people with a corpse in their trunks.

The premise is simple but the story doesn't blossom from its initial stage. There's the man with a corpse in the trunk, a patrolman and a short-circuited tail light. Well, in the 50s television was barely radio with some images so who cared about the poor storyline? At least when Hitchcock used again this trick in the first part of Psycho he only kept the strict minimum to build the suspense without wearing it out.
