The Man Who Likes Trouble, and the Woman Who Has Trouble

Legendary actor Paul Henreid is Hugo Bishop, a London lawyer who likes to play amateur detective when he thinks that justice has been thwarted, so when a friend visits him and asks him to look into the escape of a convicted murderer he is quick to take up the challenge. The escaped killer is Mervin Speight, found unconscious next to the body of a dead woman. When he regains consciousness his memory is gone, and he is quickly convicted of killing the dead girl next to him and sent to prison. Now he has escaped prison and is on the run . . . Scotland Yard believes that he will begin killing again . . . his wife Thelma, played by Lois Maxwell, has taken a new name and a new man, and she believes that he will try to kill her . . . and Bishop believes that the man is innocent and is on the hunt for the real killer. We soon discover that the dead girl had plenty of boyfriends, and one of them is probably the real killer. Suspicion slowly grows in our minds and we become convinced that the real killer is one of the men in Thelma's life today, and her convicted killer husband is not the threat to her, but the real killer . . . one of the men very close to her today. There are three men in her life today . . . Thelma is a fashion editor and her boss is longtime friend Maurice Jerrard, played by Hugh Sinclair . . . Thelma's fashion photographer friend is Rex, played by Anthony Forwood . . . and her current lover, whose last name she uses now, Victor Tasman, played by Bill Travers. One of these men is the real killer, and if he feels he is in danger of being discovered he may kill Thelma. Bishop is slowly uncovering the identity of the real killer, becoming convinced that the escaped convict is not the killer. I 'knew' who the real killer was just before the party arranged by Bishop to bring all of the suspects together . . . let me know when you discover the man. Oh, and if you think that the stunningly beautiful actress playing Thelma looks a bit familiar, you probably remember Lois Maxwell from the James Bond movies a few years after this thriller when she played the part of . . . Miss Moneypenny! Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
