Storyline

Smooth-talker Ronnie Mason earns his living by murdering lonely women for their inheritances. On the run, Ronnie poses as a disabled war vet and takes a room at the Fenchurch home. He at first courts elder daughter Hilda, but changes his plans after meeting her younger, prettier--and richer--sister. Hilda discovers Ronnie's scheme, but can she act before her sister becomes his next victim? Written by Chris Stone <jstone@bellatlantic.net>

Goofs

Clostridium botulinum can't survive as a bacteria in the open air or in a common test tube as shown in this film. It is an anaerobic organism, meaning that lives and thrives in airless environments. Botulism poisoning can come from improperly canned foods, or from the spores getting into an open wound. Clostridium botulinum spores could be used, but a tube of living bacteria as shown in this film would not survive. See more »

A GREAT FILM, WITH A GREAT CAST OF CLASSIC ACTORS!
10 May 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film was full of suspense and was well directed, the black and white effect made it a great mystery. Fay Emerson,(Hilda Fenchurch) who was married twice to the famous musician Skitch Henderson and also the son of Elliott Roosevelt, (FDR's Son) fell madly in love with Zachary Scott( Ronnie Mason/Marsh). Ronnie wins the hearts of all the ladies in the picture, even Mona Freeman(Anne Fenchurch) and proposes marriage whenever he can. Rosemary DeCamp (Dr. Jane Silla)(famous radio and tv actress in the 30's and 40's played mostly small town MOM'S) warned the ladies about Ronnie Mason's sick mind, and the abusive childhood he had when growing up, which caused his love/hate relationship with women. Fay Emerson and Zachary Scott would have been greater stars with more rewarding roles, but their lives were short lived in real life. This film is beyond critizing, it is a trully great 1945 film classic for many generations to view and enjoy!
