Movie Info

A novel by Francis Brett Young and its theatrical adaptation by John Perry were the sources for the even-keeled melodrama A Man About the House. Handsome Italian laborer Kieron Moore works as caretaker of the Neopolitan villa inherited by plain-Jane Englishwomen Margaret Johnston and Dulcie Gray. Johnston is swept off her feet by the raffishly charming Moore, and before long they are wed. Their connubial bliss lasts just long enough for Moore to poison his bride; the villa had once belonged to his family, and he's willing to use any means to get it back. Though it seems as if Moore has committed the perfect crime, Dulcie joins forces with doctor Guy Middleton to prove that Moore murdered Johnston. Since the villa fronts a vertigo-inducing clifftop, it is inevitable that someone will topple into the ocean with a piercing scream.
