TCM says:

After a bank robbery, Dr. Frank Matson waits with gangster John Wheeler, Wheeler’s lover Laura and his henchmen, for the rest of the gang to arrive. Wheeler sends Laura to ask Matson for medication for his headache, and after giving Wheeler some pills, Matson calmly picks up the medical bag containing the proceeds of the robbery and starts to leave. Laura asks to come along, and Matson tells Wheeler that the pills he swallowed contained poison. After promising to telephone him with the antidote, Matson and Laura drive away.

  1. Always wanted to see Mason with Duryea – not a great film but all the early US Masons are interesting from \\\\\\\’Caught\\\\\\\’ onwards.
    An over romanticised view of Mexican village life served to make the point that money isn\\\\\\\’t everything – but it sure helps if you\\\\\\\’re not a well paid Hollywood Screenwriter, Director or Actor.
