The Midnight Story 1957
In director Joseph Pevney's crime drama, Curtis plays Joe Martini, a rookie San Francisco traffic cop who takes a personal interest when the priest who helped raise him as a child in a local orphanage is stabbed to death. Told to stay off the case by his Sergeant (the great character actor Jay C Flippen), Joe hands in his badge and vows to solve the case himself.
At the funeral he notices a man, Sylvio (Gilbert Roland), behaving suspiciously, clutching his crucifix so tightly his palms begin to bleed. Joe strikes up a friendly conversation with Sylvio at the restaurant he owns, and takes a job for Sylvio, who invites the young man to stay in his home. Joe begins a romantic relationship with Sylvio's young Italian cousin Anna (Marisa Pavan) that culminates in their marriage. It is then that a terrible secret is revealed...
