The Hitch-Hiker

Your mom told you not to pick up strangers.

Two fishing buddies, headed to Mexico, make a mistake and end up with a third guy in their car — only the passenger is much more dangerous than the duo riding up front.

A beautifully-crafted hunk of film noir directed by Ida Lupino, this is a lean ‘n mean 71 minutes.

Just the right running time to get in, cause some damage, and get out.

William Talman, who made his rep co-starring on Perry Mason, is a creepy, sadistic brute in this one, taunting his captives as they head for a final showdown.
