Movie Info

Whitney Cameron (Joseph Cotten) is in a quandary: he's attracted to his beautiful sister-in-law, Lynn (Jean Peters), but also harbors serious suspicions about her. Her husband, Cameron's brother, died under mysterious circumstances, and now that the death of her stepchild, Polly, has been attributed to poisoning, he suspects that Lynn is after his late brother's estate, and killing everyone in her way. Cameron fears that nephew could be next, and determines to make sure no harm comes to him.

    No bad, not great semi noir. What really hurts it is the blown oppurtunity of the ending.

    This was a great movie. A Black & White Suspense film, someone is poisoning the kids. But old Cam (Joseph Cotton) knows who the guilty person is. About 3/4 into the movie I am wondering if I picked the right person. In the bitter end and I do mean bitter end the truth surfaces, but I think a sequel could have easily been made for this one, as the finger could have pointed to Cam very easy. Add this one to the collection, 4 stars for sure
