Excellent movie! Loaded with suspense throughout the entire film. Absolutely loved it! Edmond O'Brien and Frank Lovejoy were excellent as the two who picked up the "Hitch-hiker" William Talman.

This a thriller, tense and one logn unstoppable idea, bravo Ida. Talman is a great bad man and deserves all the closeups he has and he steals to O'Brien and Lovejoy

Two friends on a fishing trip pick up a stranded motorist who turns out to be a psychotic escaped convict. This sociopath has already murdered other good Samaritans in his efforts to evade authorities. He sadistically taunts and threatens the two men and perversely delights in telling them that he has them both marked for death sometime before the end of the trip. His destination is a ferryboat in Baja, California, which he hopes will help him get to the mainland. The hostages hope to stay alive long enough to escape or be rescued by Mexican authorities.

Slantโ€™s 100 Best Film Noirs of All Time (100 movies items)

"If noir could be distilled into a binary evaluation, it would be split between the films that use huge backdrops to illustrate the intimate interiors of characters and those that project outward from characters to connote a vast unease. The Hitch-Hiker belongs to the latter category, set predominantly in and around a car where two fishing buddies, Roy (Edmond Oโ€™Brien) and Gil (Frank Lovejoy), find themselves held captive by a hitchhiker, Emmett Myersis (William Talman), who reveals himself to "
