First viewed this film in the 1940's and was captured by the great acting of Gene Tierney,(Ellen Berent Harland),"Black Widow",'54, she was very beautiful and at the same time had a dark side to her appearance and acting in this film. Tierney was perfect in her role as a woman who was very possessive of her husband,(Cornel Wilde) Richard Harland, " Star of India",'53. Richard Harland could hardly breath without his wife watching every move he made and especially when he found time to enjoy her sister, while she was confined to a bed because of being pregnant. Vincent Price,(Russell Quinton),"Madhouse",'74 looked very young and played a lawyer and also great admirer of Ellen Harland. There are veteran actors in this film, Gene Lockhart, as a doctor, who gave a great supporting role. After all these years, I never dreamed this film in the Year 2000 would still be a great success and well commented about. Enjoy Generations to Come.
