She Saved a Man's Life . . . He Killed A Man

Papa was a preacher, and he always advised that it was foolish of a man to go out on the town in search of gingham when he had silk waiting for him at home . . . But sometimes the wisdom to understand that is not present in young men . . . and the smile of a curvaceous blonde can have quite an effect on any man. In this wickedly twisted tale Peter and Pat are married, and while Pat, played by Patricia Roc, works the midnight shift as a hotel switchboard telephone operator her husband Peter, played by Michael Redgrave, is a crane operator working days high above the Themes river helping to build a new bridge. Before this adventure is over Pat will declare that she has saved a man's life . . . and Peter will respond that he has just killed a man . . . . Cool scene! The heart of the adventure begins when Peter is on the train heading into downtown London on his way to work. As he is glancing out the train window at the high-rise apartments along the way he notices that in one apartment window a man is shoving a knife into a woman . . . . Say what? . . . Yup, a murder in the window of an apartment as he is quickly passing by in the train. Once off the train Peter grabs a constable and tells him his story. The constable and Peter head over to the apartment building and they try to find the apartment where he saw the man stabbing a woman. After a couple of humorous mistakes they find the apartment and as they enter they see a man staring out of the window, and a blonde girl lying face down across the rumpled bed. Peter runs over to the blonde body on the bed and grabs her arm and turns her over . . . and the sultry blonde shows surprise in her eyes as she stares at the man who roused her . . . . It turns out that the man is The Great Zoltini, a stage magician, and the young beautiful blonde is his wife/assistant, and they were practicing a new act, but they instead told Peter and the Constable that they were in a suicide pact but couldn't go through with it. The sultry blonde is dripping with sexual tension and there is considerable chemistry between Peter and Vivian. Now, don't get confused here, because Peter soon gets a newspaper article written about him saving the lives of the magician and his assistant, but this incident is NOT what I mean when I tell you that his wife Pat claims to have saved a man's life and Peter claims to have killed a man . . . That will come much later in the story. In the meantime Peter and sexy Vivian will get to know each other better as his wife Pat sleeps the day away before her return to the midnight shift at the hotel switchboard. Hold on tight because this story train is running quickly down the tracks, and as events whiz by you will be kept in suspense as to what will happen next . . . There will be a murder before the ending credits, but I guaran-dam-tee you that you will not predict who will be dead as the credits roll. So just pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
