JIGSAW is a black and white murder drama from 1962, about a young woman who is found dead and whose murderer evades detection by the police.

A woman is attacked by an unseen assailant who clamps a hand over her mouth. Subsequent police investigations reveal the discovery of a dead body but this is never shown.

There are frequent scenes of smoking.
