This picture starts with Douglas, a tough detective, turning in his badge rather than face charges of police brutality. He is hired to guard a woman (Koscina) charged with the murder of her husband. Douglas quickly figures out that the woman is being set up and goes about proving her
innocence, while falling in love with her. The plot is improbable and predictable in several sequences. A well-suited cast and sure-handed direction help gloss over some of the script's weakness.
