Jeanne Crain has never looked lovelier in this classy looking suspense movie that will leave you in knots. Costarring Carl Betz, from The Donna Reed Show, as Jeanne's husband and Michael Rennie as the ship's doctor, it concerns newlyweds who go on a cruise for a honeymoon. But this movie wastes no time on pleasantries. Carl promptly disappears and Jeanne spends the whole movie consumed in finding her husband. No one will believe her when she insists she's not alone, because no one else remembers seeing him on board. A tour de force by Jeanne Crain, as she is practically going out of her mind with worry.
(This was remade in the early 90s as a Lindsay Wagner TV-movie, which was called Treacherous Crossing.)
Miss the original, and not only do you miss one good movie, but you miss seeing Jeanne Crain, one of the sweetest and most beautiful stars ever in films, who rightly held a place in not only GIs', but all mens' hearts and second only to Betty Grable in receiving the most fan mail.
Jeanne Crain, you are not forgotten.
