Woman on the Run is a twisty and thrilling noir set in San Fransisco.

Filmed on beautiful and interesting locations, having one of the best "Roller Coaster Ride" climaxes ever put on film (You'll see what I mean when you watch it), and...one of the best leading ladies of the time, this movie should be required viewing for any film enthusiast.

They just don't make them like this any longer...
