The Hitch-Hiker

1953 NR

Good friends Ray Collins (Edmond O'Brien) and Gilbert Bowen (Frank Lovejoy) set out on a leisurely weekend fishing trip and pick up a hitchhiker along the way. Too bad for them, the hitcher, Emmett Myers (William Talman), turns out to be a raving sociopath. He's committed murder before and is looking to do so again. Emmett plays with his prey and watches them squirm in this Ida Lupino-directed thriller.
