Olivia Harwood, missionary's widow, meets charming Mark Bellis, artist and rogue, on the ship taking them both back to 1890s London. When Olivia opens a lodging house Mark becomes her lodger, then her lover. Olivia falls so completely under amoral Mark's spell that he's able to overcome her scruples, and soon she's his willing tool in an ambitious scheme of theft and blackmail...maybe too ambitious.

Oh, Mark! You say things so prettily. But I never quite know what's going on inside your head.
One day I'll tell you. You may not like it.

Although it happens in 19th century London, the movie is not so frightening as Cuckor's Gaslight but it does have its credits as a good drama about an evil man played by Ray Milland who makes a missionary widow, Ann Todd with a weird hairdo, fall in love with him just to conduct her to proceed with his plan to rob a wealthy man who is married to Ann Todd's character friend. It has its moments and is suspenseful enough.
