Perilous Holiday is a 1946 American film noir crime film directed by Edward H. Griffith and starring Pat O'Brien and Ruth Warrick.[1] The screenplay concerns a woman newspaper reporter who is on the trail of a smuggling ring operating out of Mexico.


Patrick Nevil makes the casual acquaintance of fellow American Agnes Stuart while on vacation in Mexico City. What Stuart doesn't know is that Nevil is a treasury agent, out to get expatriate counterfeiters Dr. Lilley and George Richards. What Nevil doesn't know is that Stuart is also out to get Lilley, whom she holds responsible for her father's death.
