The Walking Dead




A corrupt government organization led by a man named Nolan plans the murder of Judge Shaw. In order to turn suspicion away from the organization, Nolan throws the blame on recently released ex-convict John Elman. Nolan acts as Elman's defense attorney, and although the murder was witnessed by two medical students, Jimmy and Nancy, Elman is convicted because the witnesses are afraid to come forward. After the conviction, Nancy tells the truth to her employer, Dr. Beaumont, but although they try very hard to reach the governor, Nolan stalls things just long enough for Elman's execution to take place. Beaumont, who has been working with reviving electrocution victims, works to revive Elman. He succeeds after a fashion, but Elman's brain is damaged and he seems to have supernatural knowledge of the men who framed him. One by one the conspirators die. Although Elman does not actually kill them, something in his eyes drives the men to their death. Just before they crash their car, Nolan and his henchman Loder shoot Elman. Before he dies again, Elman advises Beaumont to leave the dead alone. (TCM)
