Did You Know?

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 »

Wonderful and suspense abounds...
18 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Caught this film on TCM in the early A.M. It was amazing.

Starting out slow but ominously.... Scott is a shady character who preys on women. In this case, two women who happen to be due an inheritance in Southern California.

The sets of the beach and neighborhoods of the 1940's are original and intriguing. The title may have been more creative, but the theme and nefarious shadows of human nature are intriguingly exposed, almost in a Hitchcockian version.

Scott reminded me of the character Uncle Charley in "Shadow of a Doubt", one of Hitch's reputed favorite films. The audience learns,we truly do not know what lurks in the dark side of the human mind.This film is a displaced gem and well-worth purchasing. 10/10.
