Climbing the High Wall

A vet to the psych ward's committed
To strangling his wife he's admitted
First cure and then try him
for murder, then fry him
Is dating the doctor permitted?

Murder suspect Robert Taylor is under the tender loving care of doc Audrey Totter behind the High Wall (Curtis Bernhardt, 1947), another late forties psychoanalytic noir. Click to enlarge the publicity still at the top.
