Frank Chambers, drifter, obtains a job at a rural roadside café owned by Nick Smith, and commences a steamy relationship with Nick's young wife Cora. After one botched attempt, the pair succeeds in murdering Nick. The District Attorney has trouble putting a proper case together. Melodramatic noir, which seems to have unnecessary plot twists tacked onto the end. Remade as The Postman Always Rings Twice (1981).
