Where the Sidewalk Ends

Dana Andrews in Where the Sidewalk Ends.

Police detective Mark Dixon (Dana Andrews) has a reputation for taking his job a little too seriously. He's become a loose cannon with a short fuse, at a point in his career where he close to losing his job if he pushes it any further. And he has done just that. An unruly suspect has raised his fists to him, and in defense he punches back, only to find the man dead due to a metal plate in his head. Fearing for his career, he decides to discard the corpse. Here we see the detective on the shore right before he dumps the body in the water. Interestingly, this scene does not appear in the finished film, we only see what takes place before and after body is dumped.
