Woman on the Run is an excellent film noir thriller. Ann Sheridan turns in a great performance as a wife in search of her missing husband. I thought they exposed the killer in the film too soon, but still the excitement never lets up. I'm not sure why it's called Woman On The Run, when it's her husband that's on the run. Could it be she was on the run to look for him or was she just running from love? See Woman On The Run. As Startling as Your OWN Scream in the Night! (tagline)★★★
