The Price of Fear is a 1956 film noir crime film directed by Abner Biberman starring Merle Oberon and Lex Barker.

Plot[edit]

David Barrett, the co-owner of a dog-track, discovers that his partner has sold out to gangster Frankie Edare (Stevens) who plans to take sole control of the track and wants to get rid of Barrett. His problems are just beginning, though, as he finds himself involved with Jessica Warren who, unknown to him, was involved in a hit-and-run accident and is trying to set him up for the crime. When Edare kills Barrett's ex-partner to frame him, Barret is falsely accused of committing two murders. Mayhem ensues when the police arrest him, but justice eventually prevails.
