(1944) Kim Hunter weds glove salesman Dean Jagger after their first date, then hears there’s a gloved strangler on the loose. But old flame Robert Mitchum is there to help. Shot in 7 days for $50,000, but “better acted than Double Indemnity and Laura” (Orson Welles). Approx. 67 minutes.
“Hitchcock was never more low-rent than this early B-movie sleeper.” – J. Hoberman
