Stolen Identity ★½ 1953

A Viennese cabbie sees his American dream dashed for lack of the proper papers. When an American businessman is murdered in his cab he is quick to seize the moment…and the dead man's identity. In no time at all he finds himself involved with the widow, entangled with the murderer and under suspicion for the killing. Predictable and sluggish, the story inches its way to the foregone conclusion. 81m/B VHS . Francis Lederer, Donald Buka, Joan Camden, Adrienne Gessner; D: Gunther Fritsch.
