Joseph Cotton, the top name actor in this film, plays a detective who accidentally kills the wife of a criminal played by Wendell Corey. Corey, rather stiff in most films, does get a chance to play a mousey, but crazed killer, who even plays one scene dressed as a woman. This is super minor for Cotton, who had prominent roles in film masterpieces such as Citizen Kane, The Magnificent Ambersons, Shadow of a Doubt, Gaslight, and The Third Man. Yeah, most of Cotton’s great performances were over by the time he played in this short, but nice crime and murder drama. Look for the twin beds, popular at this time because of the Hays Code, not ever wanting to have people know that married people usually sleep in a double bed. If you know autos, look for the rare Studebaker, one of the first major auto manufacturers to go out of business.

There are psychopaths, and then there are psychopaths. Wendell Corey is stunning as a 1950s Gary Leon Ridgway. This low-budget film wants to explore masculinity and the inadvisability of "protecting" women, but it's fuzzy on the details. Corey and Joseph Cotton, both of whom worked with Hitchcock, seem to get it; the other performers, not so much.
