Quite an unexpected film, with a twist at the end. A good cast, excellent acting and a good story from the beginning. When Stewart Granger's character murders his wife, little does he expect the series of events that will happen, as his calculating and cunning servant desperately tries to get her man. She worships him and devotes herself to him, but, in return, he attempts to murder her, only to find he bludgeon's the wrong woman. Yet again, the faithful servant - now his housekeeper - saves him, this time from the gallows. Yet again, he desperately tries to rid himself of the lower-class girl, who has become a thorn in his side. I never expected the conclusion to be quite so ......... No, that would spoil it for you!
Certainly, a story that has murder and cunning, but a sad tinge to its entire plot and certainly that conclusion.
