After a bank heist, a cop surveilling a robbery suspect's girlfriend falls under her spell and is seduced into plotting to steal the loot and runaway with her.

Vouchers are not valid for this screening.

Following a daring bank heist, cop Paul Sheridan (Fred MacMurray) is assigned to keep covert tabs on the main suspect's girlfriend. But once he makes contact with sexy Lona McLane (Kim Novak in her first starring role), he's on a slippery slope; she persuades Sheridan that they can escape together with the loot and leave both the crooks and the cops high and dry. A bristling, beautifully directed and photographed thriller, from a dynamite script by the redoubtable Roy Huggins.
