Synopsis: Nick Robey (John Garfield) panics during a robbery, and kills a cop. As he escapes the scene, he finds himself at a public swimming pool. He needs very badly to get off the streets, and he meets a lonely young girl, Peg (Shelley Winters) at the pool. She invites him home to meet her family. Once in the house, Robey reveals his true identity. The family are horrified, but Peg feels the pull of the savage! The getaway is made possible when Peg agrees to buy a car. Upon the arrival of the car, Robey begins to sense a double cross, and he forces Peg outside for the finale. Garfield and Winters are acting here at the peak of their considerable powers. Garfield died shortly afterwards, aged 39. Seeing him in this role, once can only dream about what greatness lay ahead of him. The film's writer, Dalton Trumbo, and director, John Berry, were both subsequently hounded out of Hollywood by The Blacklist.

Director: John Berry
Cast: John Garfield, Shelley Winters, Wallace Ford

The uptight and dumb small time thief Nick Robey and his partner and only friend Al Molin steal $10,000.00 from a man, but the heist goes wrong. Al Molin is killed by a policeman and Nick shoots him in the spine. He hides out in a public swimming pool and meets the lonely spinster Peggy Dobbs in the water. Nick uses Peggy to lie low. He offers a ride in a taxi to her and she invites him to her apartment, where she introduces her family to him. When Nick discovers that he killed the cop, he decides to use Peggy's apartment as hideout to wait the police manhunt cool down. When Nick finds that Peggy loves him, he invites her to leave town with him and asks her to buy a used car. However, Nick cannot trust anybody and believes Peggy has betrayed him
