Finger of Doom (Cornell Woolrich)

A young man on a date grudgingly allows his fiance to run a small errand for her boss, only to have her vanish mid-errand. Worse, when he calls the cops in there's little evidence to show she existed at all, let alone disappeared into what proves to be an unoccupied apartment.

This made liberal use of foreign, accent and dark skinned as signals of nogoodnikery. It really was not very good.

The cop in this is amazing: he decides because the protagonist is annoying, therefore the whole story about the missing girlfriend must be a cover for a murder, one he plans to beat a confession for out of the protagonist.
