Quick Overview

Starring Albert Dekker, Susan Hayward, Harry Carey, Frances Farmer,

Gordon Jones

Directed by Stuart Heisler



Print: black/white

Runtime: 67 min.

Genre: drama

Print Quality: B



Paul Raden (Albert Dekker), hopelessly insane son of Maxim Raden, hated

owner of the Radentown mills, is in a strait jacket in a secret room in the

family mansion, while the body of his father is lowered into a grave.

Twenty-five years earlier, the brutal father had hurled Paul against a wall

when the young boy had tried to defend his mother and, with his brain

injured forever, Paul's last memory, before descending into the shadows

on insanity, was his mother's agonized scream. At the graveside are Dr.

Ben Saunders (Harry Carey), Paul's twin brother John (Albert Dekker) and

John's wife Elaine (Frances Farmer.) Pompey (Ernest Whitman), the family

servant who has cared for and guarded Paul and kept the family secret

for a quarter of a century,watches from afar. That night Dr. Saunders tells

John that his twin, who he thought dead, is alive as the father, refusing to

commit him to an institution, had bribed the doctor to sign a false death

certificate and then bury another child's body as Paul. John and the

doctor visit Radenhouse and find Pompey strangled and Paul vanished.

While they search frantically for Paul, the latter revels in his freedom and

falls in love with the first girl he meets, Milly Pickens (Susan Hayward), an

unemployed mill worker. He wanders into a honky-tonk filled with dancing

jitterbugs (Patti Lacey, Roy Lester, Ray Hirsch and Jane Allen), where a

pretty blonde, Peggy Nolan (Jean Phillips), flirts with him. Her body is

found the next morning near the closed-down Raden Mills. Terrorized by

the second murder and the thought that a homicidal maniac is on the

loose, the town goes mad with fear and greed when Dr. Saunders tricks

John into offering a $5,000 reward for the killer. Milly purchases a

revolver and persuades Paul, whose demented mind has forgotten the

murders, to accompany her to Radenhouse on her hunch that the

murderer is hiding there.
