In "Smiley," Donald O'Connor stars as a man who has a grudge against all women after being falsely convicted of a crime.
Harold Smythe was a happy guy that everyone called "Smiley." He had a job as a dishwasher and never caused any trouble. Sure, people thought it was strange that he was obsessed with his pretty hands, but they only teased him about it.
As Smiley was walking home one night, his life changed forever. A woman accused him of following and accosting her. Smiley told the court he was innocent, but they didn't believe him.
Now, after two years in prison, Smiley returns to his old job as a dishwasher. His hands have been roughened by hard labor, and he has a grudge against all women. Smiley decides that the only way he can have justice is to commit the crime for which he has already served time.
Will Smiley carry out his creepy plan?
