Who'll be his next victim...YOU?

"There's Death in His Upraised Thumb!" screamed posters for Ida Lupino's the Hitch-Hiker (1953), often referred to as the only film noir to be directed by a woman.

But The Hitch-Hiker doesn't need an historic footnote to be interesting. It's an expertly-directed suspense film by any standards. Edmond O'Brien and Frank Lovejoy play family men on a fishing trip who make the near-fatal mistake of picking up mad-dog killer William Talman. Talman, known for playing the DA in the Perry Mason TV series, is pure evil here; he even sl--ps with one eye open!

The Hitch-Hiker has been mastered for DVD from a 35mm print found in the Library of Congress.
