Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Race-car driver Terence Alexander is subjected to a centuries-old curse. Alexander poohs-poohs all forms of superstition, but soon he learns the errors of his ways. The curse gimmick is barely sufficient to sustain 50 minutes-just as well, since Death is a Number clocks in at ten minutes short of an hour. The film comes to life only during the racetrack scenes. Seldom seen these days, Death is a Number was a Late Late Show fixture in the mid- to- late 1950s.
