Feature films with suspense, excitement, danger
Starring Joseph Cotten, Teresa Wright
Written for the screen and directed by Andrew Stone

A bank executive conceives a plan to steal $1-million on Friday evening, leaving just two days to get beyond the reach of the law
The Steel Trap was one of the first of a series of impressive suspense dramas made by Andrew Stone in which he abandoned studio filming in favour of real locations. Two of his later films in this vein, Cry Terror and The Decks Ran Red, have recently been shown on BBC-tv; and The Last Voyage, set on board a blazing ocean liner, will be seen later. In tonight's film a total of sixty-one separate location scenes were used as against only fifteen shot in the studio.
