Storyline

Kimble's aiding a stranded motorist lands the fugitive in a murderous love triangle. Town floozy Lucey's car stalled waiting for adulterous Lark Adams, who she claims didn't show for a rendezvous. Lark's body was already in a roadside ditch when Kimble and Lucey met. Kimble believes Lucey's innocent. So does a gallant Deputy who saw Kimble at Lucey's right after, but his Sheriff and the town's blue-bloods would love to pin the rap on loose Lucey, out of sympathy for Lark's abused blonde wife, Amy Adams.

Plot summary
21 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Kimble is walking down a country road at night when he comes across Lucey Russell, played by actress Lois Nettleton. Lucey was supposed to meet Lark Adams, who never showed. Kimble helps her fix her car, then gets a ride to town. Neither of them noticed that Lark was nearby, dead.

Lucey is a pretty and seductive young lady who was having an affair with Lark, who is a married man. Mrs. Adams (actress Patricia Smith) presses hard for Lucey's arrest for murder, and suggests Kimble may be involved. The sheriff (actor Malcolm Atterbury) arrests Lucey, but Deputy George Duncan (actor John Larch) strongly believes in Lucey's innocence. He presses Kimble to stay in town to testify on Lucey's behalf at a coroner's inquest. The maneuvering of Mrs. Adams and Deputy Duncan, as well as the fact that Kimble could never lie under oath, even about his own identity, place Kimble in jeopardy.
