A young gold digger gets hooked up with a mob boss. He gets killed in an attempt to take over his territory and she starts running. She gets off in a little Ohio town, meets a nice guy who sorts mail at the railroad station, and moves into a boarding house. Since she witnessed the shooting, the bad guys are after her. She is a frightened rabbit, afraid to face up to anything. She is incredibly unappealing. The nice guy falls for her but can't figure her out. If, at some point, she could have leveled with him, the plot would have stopped. I kept thinking, "I hope they shoot her and put her out of her misery!" There is some suspense here, but it just doesn't work very well. Of course, there is a time to pay the piper. One thing I wondered. How did she pay for the things she needed while on the lam. Oh well, no need to nitpick.
