The beautiful Gene Tierney plays the kind of girl every man can't help but fall in love with,unknowingly inspiring lust, jealousy and obsession in all around her with tragic consequences. One the the classic noirs from Otto Preminger, this film is rather more romantic and less cynical than most as well as an exercise in cinematic economy. Not one scene, not one line is wasted, which in the current climate of lumbering 3 hour ego trips is hugely refreshing. It also has some fantastic dialogue, particularly from Clifton Webb's witty intellectual yet bitter columnist. Vincent Price's turn as a self-centred playboy does not entirely convince, but this is the only real weak point of note; otherwise it will keep you guessing til the end.

I never quite bought into the film's many twists and turns and I think that's partially due to being spoiled on later detective genre films. I forget that this movie was made in 1944 and a lot of the elements that seem cliche now were new then. The acting is what intrigues me about this film and makes it stand out above pure noir.

I like this movie. A rewatch made me like it even more. My dad kind of spoiled the movie for me the first time. He only spoiled one of the twists, but luckily there are so many twists that it really doesn't matter. Anyway, I like this movie. Gene Tierney's only movie that I really care about.
