One night, small-time hood Jerry loses it, knocks out his ditsy girlfriend, who's working the night shift in a convenience store, and robs the place. Two police officers arrive to buy something and run into Jerry. After a shootout, one cop is dead and Jerry is shot in the gut. He survives and is taken to hospital. The cops threaten him but no one can touch him. He gathers that his best way out is to try to gain his nurse's trust and affection and convince her to let him escape. It works and nurse Ellen agrees to do it. However, Jerry doesn't have the whole picture.

A Surprise Ending!
29 August 2013 | by (Seymour Tennessee) – See all my reviews

Robert Carradine proves that he is not confined to being a nerd. In a remake of the "Alfred Hitchcock Hour" episode. He plays Jerry, a thug who kills a cop after robbing his girlfriend and smacking her badly from the store she works at.

He is brought to the hospital to be cared for by a caring young nurse named Ellen. Who is new there and thinks that she is so naive, he uses her to escape. As he is cuffed to a bed by the police and will be released into the jail population after he heals.

As he charms and cons his way into helping him escape. What he does not know, will be such a shocking ending. Which I won't spoil due to the fact, of those that have not seen this.

Saw this as a kid! Really exciting!
