In the suspenseful tradition of “The Naked City”, and drawn from the documented files of L.A.P.D. Homicide files, “He Walked by Night” is a first class suspense thriller about a desperate burglar who turns into a cop killer and is hounded down by the police. Richard Basehart is brilliant as the fearless fugitive.
