The Hitch-Hiker (1953)


The Hitch-Hiker (1953)


The 1953 movie The Hitch-Hiker was a thriller that many people consider to be a classic. It is about an exotic car salesman who is trying to escape from a man who has been stalking him. He ends up getting into an accident and the hitchhiker in the back seat saves his life.

The Hitch-Hiker was filmed in black and white which gave it a different look than other movies of the time. It also had an interesting twist at the end – which was unusual for movies at that time.

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]In 1950, 23-year old Billy Cook went on a murdering spree across the United States. He would hitch a ride, hold his victims hostage, and then kill them and claim their vehicles. That’s the true story behind Ida Lupino’s first noir film, The Hitch-Hiker. Two friends are on a fishing trip in Mexico, when they pick up a hitchhiker. The stranger makes them drive around Baja California, tormenting them and foiling their plans to sabotage or escape, perhaps in the same way as Cook himself had.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Movie Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XIeFKTbg3Aw

GREAT service and customer care. The staff and owners are very knowledgeable about every vehicle in their fleet… They provide optional home deliveries and pick-ups, which I think is more convenient.
