And if that's not bad enough, his partner Woods (Corey) who'd just as soon see him dead comes bopping in the door. Sure, I'll help, he says, just as soon as he figures out how to use a telephone. And when the doctor finally comes, of all people it's Arnold Moss who last played a good guy in maybe 1943. Poor Harry, looks like he's going end up a pop-tart, for sure. Imdb.
