Just threw myself off of a cliff

And the guy up and died

Tom Neal ditches Edmund MacDonald's corpse in Edgar G Ulmer's Detour. Handsome second-feature lead Neal was born into a wealthy family in Evanston, Illinois, on January 28, 1914. The well-educated Neal attended Northwestern University, where he excelled on the boxing team, and graduated from Harvard Law School at the age of 24. Then he went to Hollywood and met Barbara Payton.
