A lonely woman is anxious to marry her long-time fiancé, whose mother she's never even met. She waited through his military service in the Korean War, the mother's illness, all the while worried that her younger, wealthier fiancé will find someone who's his equal. How long must the less educated woman wait to move from her small, furnished apartment to his family's mansion - and why the delay ? Written by David Stevens

Psycho, Anyone!
14 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There's a mother out there. Where is she exactly? Barbara Bel Geddes is the long suffering fiancée who has just married a man substantially her junior. He is a man of mystery. He seems kind and loving, but still lives with his mother. There is always an excuse whenever they talk about her. Supposedly, she is an invalid, so time passes and there's always a reason, mostly physical, that she can't meet the proposed bride. It's that Psycho/Rebecca thing where there is a mysterious person out there, but we don't get to see them. Things, of course, have to come to a head. Bel Geddes lays down an ultimatum: "Marry me or I'm out the door!" The story is told in flashbacks. The young man leaves then returns from Korea. She is faithful to him for four years. If you know Hitchcock, you will really enjoy this episode.
