On Dangerous Ground


Ida Lupino is Mary Malden, blind, living in isolation on an upstate pasture. Robert Ryan is Jim Wilson, a hot-blooded cop sent up north by his captain to accompany a posse on the hunt for a local murderer.

"Wouldn't you be lonely, if you lived in a place like this?"

"Yes, I guess I would."

"The city can be lonely, too. Sometimes, people who are never alone are the loneliest. Don't you think so?"

"I don't know, I've never thought it out."

"I think you have. Sometime or other most lonely people try to figure it out — about loneliness."

"And you think I'm one of them?"

" — May I touch your hand?"
