Rating: 4/4 -- It lives on, haunting and creepy, an embodiment of the guilty soul of film noir. No one who has seen it has easily forgotten it. Full Review

Product Description:

New York Pianist Tom Neal hitchikes West to join his girlfriend, accepting a ride from affable gambler Edmund MacDonald. En route, MacDonald suffers a fatal heart attack and Neal panics, disposing of the body, and taking the car and money. He drives on, only to pick up a woman hitchiker who previously hitchiked with the gambler and who realizes the pianist is not who he pretends to be.
