October-Man.jpgThe October Man (1947): Seriously brain injured in a bus crash (which takes the life of his young companion), a recovered, but terribly guilt-ridden, man (John Mills) is suspected of murdering a needy female acquaintance. Given his mental handicap, he, himself, is not sure of his innocence and spends the remainder of the film vacillating between suicide and a desperate search for the real murderer. A very acute eye will catch a young and wholly charming Juliet Mills, the real-life daughter of the collectively beloved leading man.
