Goofs

Jayne Meadows tells Katherine Hepburn that Michael (Robert Mitchum) is not handsome. How can she say such a thing about one of the sexiest and handsomest leading men Hollywood has ever produced? Ridiculous! What were the editors thinking? See more »

Surprisingly entertaining
22 February 2007 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Expecting something completely different when I saw the cast-list, this movie took me by surprise. Hepburn discarding more or less her usual screen-persona holds this mystery-thriller together with a strong performance.Robert Taylor returning from service in WW II,takes another step from those pretty boy parts of his early career. Robert Mitchum,still fresh after his breakthrough, is more or less wasted in a supporting role. Clearly patterned after earlier successes like Preminger's "Laura" and Hitchcock's "Rebecca" this movie isn't quite in the same league,but it still better than most.This is another title I hope will arrive on DVD.
