Fleeing through the London streets after a fatal bar fight, short-fused American vet Bill Saunders (Burt Lancaster) invades the flat of war widow nurse Jane Wharton (Joan Fontaine). The hostage ultimately has her sympathies won by the troubled soldier, and her willing shelter ultimately blossoms into something more...but will his temper--and his past--wind up compromising any chance they have at happiness? Noirish drama co-stars Robert Newton, Jay Novello, Lewis L. Russell. 79 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
