Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Comic actor Mickey Shaughnessy plays it straight as Pippo, a deafmute circus clown who befriends Nonnie Regan (Yvette Mimieux) after she is savagely beaten by her husband Tom (Christopher Dark). Convinced that Nonnie is being unfaithful, Tom kills her, then stands silently by as Pippo is arrested for the crime. The perfect murder? Not quite: Before long, Tom is being haunted at every turn by visions of Pippo's painted face...and by things even worse.
