  • Plot Summary: In this vintage film noir, crime-rag publisher Earl Janoth (Charles Laughton) tries to tag his editor George Stroud (Ray Milland) with the savage murder of the publisher's mistress when he glimpses the editor skulking out of her apartment. The twist to an otherwise familiar tale is that Janoth assigns Stroud to find the killer, even as the clues start pointing right at the editor himself. Based on Kenneth Fearing's novel, the film was remade in 1987 as NO WAY OUT.
