πŸŽ₯ Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye – 1950

The Story …

Ralph Cotter is a career criminal who, while escaping from a prison work camp, kills his escape partner, Carleton.

On the outside, Cotter ultimately woos Carleton’s sister, Holiday, by threatening to expose the fact that she was involved in arranging the prison break. Holiday does not know that Cotter killed her brother …

There are hints of a sadomasochistic bond between the two in a scene where Cotter is provoked to whip Holiday with a wet towel, after which she passionately embraces him.

Cotter quickly gets back into the crime gameβ€”only to be shaken down by corrupt local cops. Things become more complicated with each plan, and worsen when he turns the tables on the bad cops.

Finally, Holiday discovers that Cotter killed her brother and that he is dumping her for a wealthy young heiress. She is thrown into a violent rage …
