After escaping from prison, wrongfully convicted James Lake is picked-up on the highway by a car driven by wealthy Leslie Whitlock. Whitlock knows the description of the fugitive prison inmate from the news bulletins from his car radio. He suspects that his passenger is the escapee but has a diabolic plan in mind. He intends to have his rich wife murdered in order to inherit her wealth but needs a patsy to take the blame. Therefore, he offers Lake ten thousand dollars to kill his wife. Lake, who is not a hardened criminal, refuses but he is blackmailed into accepting the contract by Whitlock who threatens to hand him to the police. Whitlock suggests Lake strangle his wife, take the contract money and escape into Mexico. At the mansion, Whitlock introduces Lake to his wife as a hitchhiker who should be lodged for the night due to bad weather. Ellen, the unsuspecting wife of Leslie Whitlock, offers Lake the guest room for the night. However, the police is already combing the neighborhoods and warning the residents about Lake's escape from prison. Furthermore, his escape has been quickly published in the evening newspapers. Lake's chances of escaping his predicament seem slim. —nufs68
I saw this movie when it came out . . .
This movie came out when I was in college and I remember going with a girlfriend to see it - I liked Raymond St. Jacques a lot & still remember him -I loved it! He was so gorgeous and such a good actor - Back then - about 40 years ago (egad !), it was a daring film, and is thus a period piece - I remember the love scenes - I remember thinking how much they cared for each other - You cannot possibly watch this movie without being into what the times were like - I had marched through Harlem only maybe a few years before: the first march through Harlem with all of us together (as I was very active at CIty College (NY)) - Free sex was in its beginnings. The whole audience was hooting and exclaiming through the whole thing - it was really fun! My first experience with that kind of participating audience - the movie might not be the greatest, but the acting is worth it - just for Raymond St. Jacques himself! I've been wanting to see it again for a long time. It's part of the 60's . . .
