Handsome Stewart Granger and his then wife, the lovely Jean Simmons, returned to Britain at the peak of their international stardom for this suspenseful Victorian melodrama. In an atmospheric tale of lust and blackmail, the ever underrated Granger is particularly effective as the murderer, his unique combination of matinée idol looks and ability to appear at ease in period clothing being used to good effect. The Technicolor photography and the clever Shepperton studio interiors also complement him perfectly. A fine British supporting cast (Finlay Currie, Ronald Squire) does sterling work, and Rank starlet Belinda Lee is suitably glamorous. Well worth catching.

Plot Summary

Thriller starring Stewart Granger and Jean Simmons. In Victorian London, the plans of wife murderer Stephen Lowry to get rid of the maid who is blackmailing him go badly wrong.
