Walsh and Bentley are brothers, a pair of crime novelists who share Anderson as a secretary. One of them kills a man (Martin-Harvey) in order to create a realistic plot for his next work. He takes Anderson with him and threatens to hang her. The other brother must find the corpse,

Anderson, and his brother, all culminating in a wild car crash. The story here is nothing new, but direction is fresh and original. Taking this simplistic plot line, Guillermin manages to inject some good suspense into a modestly budgeted feature. Walsh, Bentley, and Anderson play their roles well

and play against one another with skill. Producer and writer John Guillermin went on to write and direct a number of TARZAN movies.

Coming Soon

Because it's never too early to plan Thursday night... two months from now.
