Marion Forbes is the secretary, the lover and the creator of the financial fortunes of Harry Chapman, but Chapman falls in love with Francis and decides to marry her. The revenge of Marion is terrible. With the help of the third voice she kills Harry who is then impersonated by the third voice. All of this to steal $600,000. Written by

Worthwhile, but not brilliant, film noir by director/writer Hubert Cornfield. Edmond O'Brien does a good job as a man hired to impersonate a rich businessman after the businessman is murdered. A few good twists, but the movie seems to have a lot of padding (too many long driving shots), some unfortunate zooms that cheapen the style, and way too many wipes as transitions because the director gave himself no other options. It's fun, but if it had been done by Edgar Ulmer, it could have been a mini-masterpiece.
