When she wakes up from her coma she identifies Dr. Cross as the murderer. His nurse and mistress, Elaine Jordan, convinces him to kill her with a high amount of insulin. He does not want to kill her and tells Elaine to get the medicine to undo the insulin. She denies his order and begins to fight with him. He ends up suffocating her and brings Janet back to life. Now he has to deal with two deaths.

Film noir classic, noted for its dark themes, stark camera angles and high-contrast lighting.
