This review is from: Footsteps In The Fog [DVD]  (DVD)
This should have been a huge hit at the time of release. Very good performances from Stewart Granger and Jean Simmons in the lead roles.
Stewart Granger murders his wife in turn-of-the-century London. He is discovered by maid Simmons, who has always secretly loved him. She blackmails her way into the housekeeper position, and Granger decides he has to kill her too. Pursuing her in the fog, he mistakes someone else for her and kills a stranger. Arrested and put on trial, Granger is saved from the gallows by testimony from Simmons, who then tightens her psychological grip on him.
This is a very good film and should have received higher acclaim. The transfer to DVD is a good one. The twist at the end will only enhance your appreciation of a fine movie. If your viewing these reviews without previously having seen the film, take a chance and buy it - you'll be pleasantly surprised. The only extra is the cinematic trailer. Maybe one day this will re-released on blu ray with many production extras.
