The Story: After witnessing a mafia hit, a man goes on the run to try to stay ahead of those who want to silence him. Of all the people searching for him, none searches harder than his bitter wife, despite their marriage being in shambles. As she searches, she begins to realize that their marriage is worth saving, but will her husband live long enough for it to matter?
The fast-paced and suspenseful plot is filled with snappy dialogue and memorable scenes. One such scene involves a woman who is trapped on a roller coaster right as a murder is about to take place below the ride. Despite desperately wanting to help, she can do nothing to stop what is coming or warn the victim. No one is able to distinguish her screams from the noise being made by all the other people who are at the theme park.
The main message of Woman on the Run is also notable, since it is strong and clear without being overbearing. The events of the story encourage spouses to work hard to know and love each other in marriage instead of letting problems push them apart. Few films have managed to so perfectly balance a bold message and a well-executed plot. I hope that in the future more viewers will get to see this classic movie.
