Overview

A disquieting story of obsession and manipulation unfolds in a critically acclaimed thriller based on a novel by crime writer Edgar Lustgarten. Oscar® and Golden Globe winner Rex Harrison plays a man accused of murdering his mistress, with Lilli Palmer (then Harrison's wife) as the woman who stands by her husband as he fights for his life in the courtroom.

Harrison would later list the film among his least-favourite credits, but his verdict was unduly harsh on this taut, intriguing and well-acted crime picture.
