Plot Summary

Injured after committing a bank robbery, John Taylor is desperate to find a place to hide out and approaches the home of Warick Wilson. John manages to get himself invited into the house by posing as a friend of a friend and spinning a sob story of lost luggage and a violent mugging. Inside, Warick, a consummate host, is making the final preparations for an impeccable dinner party. He insists John stay for the party, but as the evening begins it becomes obvious Warick may not be what he first appears. Written by L. Hamre

Goofs Warwick breaks a plate on the dinner table. After Warwick ties John up at the table with his hands behind his back, John finds one of the plate shards on the table. John takes the shard in his mouth and drops it in his chair. The camera cuts away for a few seconds and then the next time we see John he is using the shard to cut the rope that binds his hands behind his back. John would either have to stand up from the chair or bring his hands in front of him to get the shard from his chair into his hands. Not enough time passed for him to have done either of these things plus Warwick would have noticed. See more »
