John Crawford is a charming, smooth American Sergeant stationed in Great Britain in the early 1960's. Amid claims that the US servicemen are wolves, he gets involved with a lovely young school teacher.

Due to unforeseen events, they don't connect for their first date and Crawford ends up taking another woman dancing. Later that night, she is killed walking home. The blame points to Crawford unless he can find an alibi. But will this unlikely person step forward or cover up the truth?

Is the plot a bit far-fetched? Yes. Is the premise believable? No, not really. Is the ending obvious? Yep. But the actors are very likable, and you end up caring about what happens to them. The man who portrays the real killer is one of the most creepy characters I have seen on screen.

Give this film some time. I didn't think I would care for it during the opening scene, but it grows on you. By the end credits, I was thoroughly satisfied. Its worth your time.

Well done, but one can see the plot coming miles ahead of time; three stars.
