During a London reunion of a World War II RAF unit, an American pilot gets into a fight with one of his buddies, who is drunk and belligerent. The next day the pilot wakes up in a strange hotel room with blood on his suit, and can't remember how he got there. Then he discovers that the friend he fought with the night before has been murdered, and he is a prime suspect.

lostho019a. Although this is part of the car chase in lostho022/023 Robin advises that this segment was actually filmed at the junction of Hazlitt Road and Maclise Road. "One piece of trivia" he adds, is that one of the residents of the corner house in Maclise Road where the film camera was located, was a local Pavement Artist who used to be seen around with a shoulder sack of coloured chalks for sketching large tableaux in the Hammersmith area.
