A cop investigating a jewel robbery finds that all trails lead to his girlfriend - but she claims she's being framed.
Absolutely fascinating film noir which features 1936 Olympic ice skater Belita. Born in Hampshire, England, she made the transition from ice skater to Hollywood actress appearing in a handful of movies including 'The Hunted'. A interesting piece that basically revolves around a police detective who was her boyfriend and her captor who saw her serve four years in prison for theft of jewels. Upon her release they meet again and following a murder, she is chased down once again by her boyfriend played by Preston Foster. Mostly filmed as a two person character piece, this movie is actually quite absorbing and the longer it went on, the more i fell for it. Belita had a short time in Hollywood after which she retired from Hollywood and opened a garden centre in West London. A naturally beautiful girl that shone for a short time but gave us this gem.
Charles McGraw isn't in the credits! :( That guy is awesome! Very good movie. Lots to like about it.
