In "Photo Finish," Michael O'Shea stars as a sidewalk photographer who snaps a picture that gets him into all kinds of trouble.
Joe Mooney is a roaming "candid camera" photographer who makes a living taking pictures informally and then selling them back for a buck. At the end of one hot afternoon, Joe takes a picture of a guy who appears to swoon and then fall to the ground. As it turns out, the guy was the target of a "hit," and Joe has unknowingly caught the event on film.
Joe then goes home and gets in trouble with his wife, Maude, for being late. When he tries to explain what kept him at work, he realizes that he left his camera downtown. Then, the police arrive at his door. Joe agrees to go downtown with them to get his camera, but soon realizes that these men aren't really homicide detectives. So, who are they and why do they want the film in Joe's camera?
