Synopsis

Two strangers – Skip McCoy and Candy – have a no longer so danger meeting on a crowded subway. Freshly out of jail, McCoy is returned at paintings as a pickpocket, Candy’s purse that’s his current sight. What he manages to thieve from Candy’s handbag is a few microfilm with secret US authorities plans that Candy turned into approximately to deliver to the Communists for her ex-boyfriend, Joey. What she didn’t recognise was the character of her delivery, that Joey is a Communist agent, and that federal sellers, who knew her destination, saw McCoy’s move. The federal agents with the police on one side, and Candy, Joey and their friends on the alternative side, are all after McCoy. But McCoy also reveals out the significance of his take, and in preference to buckling underneath the pressure, holds onto the movie ultimately to remove to whoever can come up with $25,000 sale price. Once she learns extra about all the players involved, Candy changes her allegiances. But while one of the gamers turns into desperate, the complaints turn to a violent nature. In the give up, motivation for a few turns from that of retrieving the microfilm and money to 1 of private loyalty. tt0046187
