Wilson releases Kindler's former comrade Meinike and follows him to Harper, Connecticut, where he is killed before he can identify Kindler.

Another early sequence that was cut by editor Ernest J. Nims was the first meeting of Charles Rankin and Mary Longstreet, in the woods near the town of Harper, Connecticut. Mary tells Rankin about the town's Gothic clock on top of the church, explaining that one of her ancestors brought it to America by sailing ship. They then walk through the church cemetery, as Mary points out the gravestones of her Longstreet ancestors who are buried there. A later scene in the movie recalls this scene, when Mary walks through the graveyard to confront Rankin, who is hiding out inside the church. Mary tells Rankin, "I came by our way, through the cemetery. No one saw me." Given the deletion of the earlier scene, this dialogue doesn't make much sense. See more »
