Fearing he'll be implicated, he flees. Living the life of a vagrant, he one night discovers a disfigured corpse by the railroad tracks and decides to assume the dead man's identity. Uh-oh.

KILLER AT LARGE
Another terrific and obscure poverty row (PRC this time!) B noir! A hard-nosed newspaper reporter walks off his job after his editor refuses to print his story about the questionable suicide of a public official.

Photographed by James Brown. Directed by William Beaudine. In B&W. 16mm film print. 63 mins. 1947. MON at 6:40 and 9:30.
