The two friends plot an escape, but the hitchhiker's peculiar physical affliction, an eye that never closes even when he sleeps, make it impossible for them to tell when they can make a break for it.The Hitch-Hiker featuring Edmond O'Brien and Frank Lovejoy is free on Tubi TV, streaming with subscription on The Criterion Channel, streaming with subscription on Kanopy, and 1 other.
