4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Gem
What a remarkable movie this is. Hard-edged, cynical and totally lacking in sentimentality. The stars are most impressive and the direction puts the film way up there with Gaslight ( the superior English version). An excellent print - lovingly transferred - and a solid audio track too! Although perhaps showing its "stage" origins, it is none the less an most enjoyable and...

Great acting, a murder that shows you whodunnit, a mercinary maid, fabulous. Its how we imagine Victorian London to be. Hidden and shadowed in the swirling fog. You almost want him to get away with it so that they can be together.

This film is perfect for a cold and rainy Sunday afternoon. It will transport you to another era of feminine helplessness, of cunning cads and good triumphing over evil. Enjoy!

I'd seen this film many years ago and liked it. I found I still liked it because the acting was good - although the outcome was quite evident from a third of the way through - showing a couple of actors (married at the time) carried it all through very well!

As always, old films have to be in my collection!! This one is no exception! Stewart Granger, the man the ladies of the day loved....he was handsome though wasn't he?

This review is from: Footsteps In The Fog [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
Footsteps In The Fog is all that the earlier reviewers have said in its praise. To the list of the film's strengths also may be added the wistful, hauntingly effective theme music, particularly 'Lily Watkins's Tune', composed by the splendid British composer Benjamin Frankel. That melody has stayed with me for over half a century since my first seeing the film.

This review is from: Footsteps In The Fog [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
Footsteps in the Fog is directed by Arthur Lubin and collectively written and adapted by Lenore J. Coffee, Dorothy Davenport & Arthur Pierson. It is based on the short story, The Interruption, written by Gothic novelist W. W. Jacobs. It stars Stewart Granger, Jean Simmons, Bill Travers, Belinda Lee and Ronald Squire. Music is by Benjamin Frankel and Technicolor cinematography by Christopher Challis.

Stephen Lowry (Granger) is found by the house maid, Lily Watkins (Simmons), to have poisoned his wife. She promptly uses the information to blackmail Lowry. But with an attraction there they begin to have a relationship, however, motives and means are far from clear.....

A darn cracker of an Edwardian thriller that's redolent with Gothic atmosphere and film noir tints, Footsteps in the Fog also features nifty story telling that's acted considerably well by the then husband and wife team of Granger & Simmons. The plot features murder, betrayal and dangerous love, with warped psychology the order of the day, all done up splendidly in Technicolor by Powell & Pressburger's favourite cinematographer, Challis. Characterisations are deliberately perverse, Lily knows Stephen is a murderer, but is not afraid of him, she loves him on the terms of love that only she understands. Stephen is a dastard, dangerously so, but he's not beyond remorse either, and shows it. Both homme and femme are connivers, a recipe for disaster. These facts mark this particular coupling out as one of the most skew whiff in 50s thrillers. And thankfully when the denouement comes, it's a kicker, a real throat grabber that perfectly crowns this deliciously crafty picture. Support comes from a number of established British thespians like William Hartnel, Finlay Currie and Ronald Squire, while the art department have come up trumps for the period design. All told it's a film deserving of a bigger audience and easily recommended to fans of classic melodrama and thrillers. 8/10
