The Man Who Cheated Himself Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

[[Performer~P13814~Lee J. Cobb~leejcobb]] stars as Ed Cullen, a San Francisco police lieutenant, embroiled in a clandestine romance with married socialite Lois Frazer ([[Performer~P77689~Jane Wyatt~janewyatt]]). When Lois kills her husband Howard ([[Performer~P74677~Harlan Warde~harlanwarde]]), the flustered Cullen vows to cover for her. He arranges the evidence to suggest that Howard was shot during a robbery. Things get sticky when Cullen is assigned to investigate the case, together with his more honest younger brother Andy ([[Performer~P16661~John Dall~johndall]]). How can Cullen escape detection without destroying his brother's standing with the force? Man Who Cheated Himself is worth seeing if only to watch [[Performer~P77689~Jane Wyatt~janewyatt]] play against her established screen image. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
