Footsteps in the Fog Reviews
FOOTSTEPS IN THE FOG is a nicely atmospheric, dramatic showcase for the then married Granger and Simmons. It's all gaslights, foggy back streets and opulent drawing rooms. While not a "great" film, it holds your attention with the story's numerous twists of fate. Though it's shot in color, I think the picture would've been aided greatly if it were shot in black and white.
Things learned from this movie:
1.) Never live in the same house with someone you know to be a murderer.
2.) Never live in the same house with someone you know is willing to blackmail you.
They make a fantastic pair to watch on screen as they both have so much presence and talent and are a joy to watch as they lead you through the simple but shrewd plot.
Easily one film that will never date and miles better than some of the nonsense that's released now. This is perfect for sunday viewing and one you won't mind watching again when Film4 re run it for the 8th time.
