Storyline

Attractive but treacherous Louise Douglas convinces her husband (a bank messenger) to steal $53,000 and flee the country with her. She also convinces her paramour (a truck driver) to assault her husband and take the money so that HE can flee the country with her. Dan Mathews' suspicions are aroused by Ms. Douglas' lack of genuine concern for her unconscious husband and he launches an all-out effort to apprehend her. Aware that she is being pursued, the scheming Louise deserts the truck driver at her first opportunity and is able to steal a car from yet another would-be romantic interest in a bold attempt to elude Dan's unrelenting pursuit.

Trivia

The diner seen here, The Saugus Cafe, is still in existence at the same address - 25861 Railroad Ave, Santa Clarita, California. The address is seen on the building. It can been seen in the Google Streetview. Apparently the street has been widened, as the parking lot is now gone, and the sidewalk is now up against the building. The barber shop is gone, replaced by a parking on the side. See more »

When Dan arrives at the hospital to check on the condition of Frank Douglas, he refers to Douglas as "Mr. Lawson". See more »

Narrator: For the most part, the wild, the reckless, the foolish driver is encountered on the road after sundown. But occasionally the Highway Patrol meets up with one in broad daylight. And sometimes, upon apprehending a reckless driver, the Patrol finds more than it bargained for.
