Black Widow

Guy gets amnesia after being blackjacked and his car stolen. Regaining his memory, he returns to his home and wife. He gets a bit suspicious when his wife carries on with his funeral. The rest you can sort of guess from the title. . .

Early Hammer is basic, but enjoyable, especially watching Ayres (better than usual here) turn the tables on his would-be murderers. Never on DVD, only on VHS some two decades ago, so apologies for the poor caps.
