Fingers at the Window is a 1942 film directed by Charles Lederer and released by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.


An axe murderer is stalking people in Chicago. The streets are empty at night as there have been six murders and six people have been caught, but they are lunatics. Only one person has lived to tell about it and that was Edwina (Day). If it were not for Oliver (Ayres), she would be number seven.

When there is a second attempt on Edwina, Oliver figures that the crimes are not random and that someone is hypnotizing these people to do his bidding, but the police and Edwina are skeptical.


The film made $288,000 in the US and Canada and $260,000 elsewhere, making a profit of $29,000.[1]
