This film isn`t marvellous but it is entertaining. Husband and wife team Stewart Granger and Jean Simmons both play against their normal roles. He is a very wealthy man who has murdered his wife and got away with it, she is the housemaid who knows what has happened, and threatens to tell unless he gives her his wife`s, jewellery and clothes and a better position in the household.
Both of the stars look terrific. Not exactly a handsome `hero` and beautiful `heroine`, since they are both so horrible, but they are nice to look at.
The thing that is a nuisance is that after every scene, the screen blacks out before the next scene starts. There are a lot of short scenes so the blackouts happen a lot. Thank goodness, we don`t have to put up with it these days.
