The Second Woman (1950)
Movie InfoIn the vein of Spellbound and Rebecca comes this 1951 film noir from director James V. Kern. Robert Young stars as Jeff Cohalan, a successful architect who is tormented by the fact that his fiancée was killed in a mysterious car accident on the night before their wedding. Blaming himself for her death, Colahan spends his time alone, lamenting in the cliff-top home he'd designed for his bride-to-be.

Audience Reviews for The Second Woman
Solid little pyschological drama. Taking into account that the view of the mind and it's workings has changed since this was made it's still an entertaining film. Young is fine in the lead and the supporting cast is strong, it would have benefitted from a more forceful leading lady. Betsy Drake isn't bad she just doesn't possess a potent screen persona that compels you to watch her like Gloria Grahame or Lauren Bacall did.More
