The tension generated by this movie is palpable. I couldn't wait to find out what was going on.
It has the identity confusing of "MY Name Is Julia Ross," a better, scarier movie. It reminded me also of the original radio play for "Sorry Wrong Number." (Not of the movie based on it, which is not very good.) Jeanne Crain, in many changes of fabulous gowns, furs, and jewels, thinks she is boarding an ocean liner with her new husband. Then he disappears. Everyone thinks she is a little odd. Then people start to think she's crazy.
But we saw them so we know she isn't lying or hallucinating. We just don't know, till maybe three-quarters of the way through, what is going on.
Michael Rennie is appealing as the conflicted ship's doctor. He is attracted to her. He likes her. But the captain is telling him she's crazy. What should he do? To find out, try to ctach this superb thriller by one of the great directors of noirs, Joseph M. Newman.
