Rating: 4/5 -- Lupino draws a performance of crackling malevolence from William Talman, as the serial killer physically and mentally scarred by his abusive childhood. Equally authentic is the impotent terror of weekend fishermen Edmond O'Brien and Frank Lovejoy. Full Review

Both Edmond O'Brien and Frank Lovejoy are experts as stalwart men gripped in a situation they never made. Full Review

Rating: B -- This suspenseful film noir is superbly acted and sharply helmed by Ida Lupino, one of the few women directors in Hollywood of the 1950s. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- There's no estrogen whatsoever in The Hitch-Hiker, as spare and muscular a picture as the 1950s ever produced. Full Review
The Dissolve
Oct 22, 2013
Taut, tough, and entirely without macho-glorification, it's a gem, with first-class performances from its three protagonists, deftly characterised without resort to cliché. Full Review

Product Description:

An acclaimed film noir thriller in which two vacationing men are held captive by a hitchhiking psychopath with one eye that never closes. Though years of more horrific violence and suspense have dulled its impact somewhat, it was way ahead of its time. Considered among Lupino's best work, this film was the progenitor of many, many films that would follow in its tire-treads and is a must-see.
