An aging heir-less millionaire wants to leave his fortune to the unsuspecting family of his first love but not before testing his prospective heirs by living with them under the guise of a poor boarder.
So what we have here is a sub Hitchcock thriller whilst not being terrible in great neither. When Alison Courtland finds herself waking on a train with a gun in hr possession and no idea of how she got there a mystery in set in motion. Is Alison going mad are or there more skuldugerous machinations in place. A well paced film where the characters are true to form and he ending very apparent this is still enjoyable, though I would not go out of my way to view the movie again. However I would spend a lazy afternoon watching it on TV. This is a movie that is definitely of its age with the lead female characters being particularly sub servant and the heroes' proper heroes. If you like noir add a star but worth a go.
