Summary
D.O.A.: On vacation from his clinging girlfriend, a complacent accountant unknowingly swallows a drink spiked with radioactive poison and then spends the last desperate hours of his life trying to find out who killed him -- and why.
Detour: Hitchhiking across the country to reunite with his girlfriend the film's "hero" encounters two sinister characters -- one of them a venomous, blackmailing woman whom he accidentally murders.
Stranger: Orson Welles directs and stars in this thriller about a monstrous Nazi official who's hiding out as a small-town American college professor. A war crimes detective turns up determined to expose him -- even if it means endangering the Nazi's innocent wife.
Scarlet street: Homely, henpecked Chris Cross leads an honorable, if tedious, middle-class life until he falls madly in love with the dangerously seductive young Kitty.
Killer bait: A bickering couple finds a bag of money in the back seat of their car. The husband wants to turn the illicit cash in, but his money-hungry wife has a different idea -- and she'll do anything to realize it.
