Crime of Passion

'Behind every successful man...': the old cliché gets full-bloodedly melodramatic illustration as Stanwyck takes detective husband Hayden's prospects for LAPD promotion into her own hands (soon bloodied). Oswald, son of German director Richard and responsible for one of the most visually arresting and thematically over-the-top episodes of The Outer Limits (Shape of Things Unknown), could usually be relied on to turn budgetary constraints to energetic advantage.
