This is an 11" x 17" two-sided press sheet for the 1955 Byron Haskin
noir film Killer Bait, a rerelease of the 1949 Too Late for
Tears, based on a serial written for the Saturday Evening
Post and a screenplay both by Roy Huggins and starring Lizabeth
Scott as Jane Palmer. Plot summary: Jane and Alan Palmer [Arthur
Kennedy] are driving to a party late at night on a lonely highway when
a satchel containing about $60000 is unexpectedly tossed into their
back seat. The money is obviously meant for someone else because they
have to evade a pursuer on the way home; when they examine the stash
in their Hollywood apartment Alan wants to turn it in to the police,
but Jane wants to hang on to it so Alan puts it in a locker at Union
Station to satisfy her. Before long someone named Danny Fuller [Dan
Duryea] comes to their apartment posing as a detective, but then drops
the facade when he finds some newly purchased goods and realizes Jane
has been spending the stash; he claims the money belongs to him. Jane
tells Danny she will split the money with him, but she really plans to
kill him when she gets him out into the hills. Danny realizes he
cannot trust Jane and flees. In a later altercation Jane shoots her
husband during a boat ride, dumps him in the lake and then reports him
to the police as a missing person. Jane later retrieves the money
from the locker and goes to Danny's apartment to ask for his help, but
ends up killing him with a poisoned drink instead.
