One of the very best of British suspense thrillers to come out of the 1950s - full of high drama, and unusually for Britain of the time; made in glorious colour! A great movie, starring the late Jean Simmons and Stewart Granger - both in fine form.
A housemaid (Simmons) who's in love with her master, discovers a secret about her employer that may just tip the balance of love in her favour. A most clever young woman who's up against many odds, but manages to turn events about, and all in the name of love - but not for material gain as her actions may imply. Likewise, and even cleverer still; her master (Granger) uses the situation to turn things about yet again, but several key events backfire on both as each attempt to outwit the other in order to get what each of them wants.
This is an exceptionally high-quality drama, using both cunning, deceit and the fierceness of unrequited love to score points in a most unique suspense thriller.
