Summary
  • Too late for tears: "A man just found $60,000 and his wife insists that he keep it rather than turn it in to the cops. Wanting the money for herself, she kills her husband then reports him missing. The plot thickens when her first husband's brother appears on the scene."--Container
  • The man who cheated himself: "Ed Cullen, a San Francisco police officer, is in love with socialite Lois Frazer. Ed seems to find himself stuck between a rock and a hard place when Lois decides to kill her husband and Ed's brother is assigned to solve the case."--Container
  • The stranger: "Charles Rankin, a college professor living Connecticut, is hiding an evil Nazi past. When one of his guilt-stricken ex-soldiers shows up in town, the two men go for a long walk into the woods, but Rankin comes out alone."--Container
  • The strange case of Martha Ivers: "Martha Ivers is a rich and conceited heiress bound to a man she despises because of a crime she committed long ago. Her socialite life begins to unravel when an old friend returns to town."--Container
  • The hitch-hiker: "When two men on a fishing trip pick up a hitchhiker, their lives take a haunting turn. The lone traveler turns out to be a psychopath who also happens to sleep with one eye open."--Container
  • Quicksand: "In order to take Vera out on a date, Dan Brady needs some money. He starts by swindling his employer, then hocks a watch, robs a bar patron, steals a car, and by the end of the movie finds himself running from the law, gun in hand."--Container
  • Detour: "After he is picked up while hitchhiking, Al Roberts' samaritan dies of a heart attack. Afraid of being accused of the murder, he ditches the body, then takes the man's clothes, wallet, and car. On the road again, he picks up a beautiful woman named Vera. Things get really strange when Vera unexpectedly blurts out: "What did you do with the body?"--Container
  • The scar: "Convicted thief John Muller tries to go into hiding by assuming the identity of a psychiatrist (Dr. Bartok) who looks just like him, all he needs to do is scar his face in the same place as the doctor's. Unfortunately, the picture he's using was printed from a reversed negative, causing him to scar the wrong side of his face."--Container
  • D.O.A.: "When Frank Bigelow realizes that he's been poisoned by deadly iridium, he desperately retraces the last 24 hours of his life, trying to discover who wants to murder him."--Container
