They're one kiss away from MURDER!

Millionaire-industrialist Walter Williams is marked for murder by his sexy young wife and her seedy lover.When the insidious plot ends in a fiery disaster, Williams is thought dead.In reality, he finds himself without a clue as to who he is or what happened. But as his memory starts to return, his shattered life becomes a runaway roller coaster ride of suspense and excitement!

Beautifully photographed on location in San Francisco, this "hard-boiled drama" snaps with smart dialogue, a hell-frosted broad and more twist than a rusty corkscrew.Impact is truly a forgotten film noir masterpiece.-Wade Williams
