In this thrilling film noir from trailblazing director Ida Lupino, friends Ray (Edmond O'Brien) and Gilbert's (Frank Lovejoy) fishing trip takes a terrifying turn when the hitchhiker (William Talman) they pick up turns out to be a sociopath on the run from the law. He's killed before, and he lets the two know that as soon as they're no longer useful, he'll kill again.. Chosen for preservation in the National Film Registry by the National Film Preservation Board, USA.. " ... A taut, compelling, ... brilliantly suggestive film noir-thriller. The film showcases Lupino’s idiosyncratic strengths as a director while offering an unusually direct and cogent critique of American masculinity’s investments in and estrangement from a culture of fraternity and brotherhood." - David Greven, Bright Lights Film Journal
