The Professor and the Woman in the Window

Richard Wanley, played by Edward G. Robinson, is a middle aged professor at Gotham University in New York City. His youth is gone, and with it all expectation of adventure . . . . His life is quite boring . . . He teaches the psychology of crime and murder to young boys and girls who aren't very interested. He spends many of his evenings at his club enjoying a cigar and a drink with his two friends, District Attorney Lalor, played by Raymond Massey, and Doctor Barkstane, played by Edmund Breon.

This night as the professor arrives at the club he sees a portrait of a woman in a shop window. The woman is enchanting . . . . Enticing . . . . Exciting . . . . Seductive . . . . What a Woman! When his two friends arrive they inform him laughingly that they saw her first and have first claim on her. Later that night when the professor leaves the club he takes a final gander at the woman in the window, and suddenly he sees her face in the glass next to her portrait.

What luck that the professor with no adventure in his life should meet the woman in the window . . . . She is standing right behind him and is watching him stare at her portrait in the window. This leads to that and he goes to her apartment to see her sketches . . . . Yes, that is correct, she has sketches at her apartment and he goes to check them out.

While he is there a man enters and sees our mild-mannered professor with his woman, and without waiting for any explanation he starts to strangle the professor . . . As we watch in horror the professor is dying . . . . His throat is being crushed by the powerful hands of the stranger.

As the professor struggles and is certainly near death, the woman in the window hands the professor a pair of scissors and the professor instinctively plunges the scissors with all his might into the man who is strangling him . . . . The man falls to the floor and the professor has survived . . . . But now what to do . . . . The man is dead . . . Call the police of course . . . But then he hesitates.

He talks to the woman and discovers that no one in the world knows that the man visits her . . . No one in the world knows he is there now . . . . If they can dump his body out in the country somewhere . . . . No one will ever connect the dead man to the professor, or to the woman in the window . . . . All will be well if the professor can dispose of the body . . . . All will be well if he makes no mistakes and leaves no clues . . . . All will be well if he can trust the woman in the window . . . It will be easy . . . . What could go wrong? . . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with lots of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
