When a man asks another man more facile with words to do his wooing for him, there are always complications. The man with no talent for writing marries the girl, confesses one night he didn't write the letters and ends up with a knife in his back. The writer of the letters fell in love with the woman he wrote to and wants to become her second husband even if she did murder husband number one. Singleton doesn't remember the murder or anything about the first 22 years of her life as Victoria Remington. Then at her second wedding she wonders why she said "I take you, Roger," instead of "I take you, Alan."Written by

In the letter that Beatrice Remington writes to Captain Quinton which she mails through the postal service, she writes that she saw Victoria "yesterday", which would have been yesterday to the time Quinton received the letter and not yesterday to the time that she writes the letter. Writing such a statement is therefore illogical, especially in not knowing how long it would take for the letter to be delivered. See more »

This is one of the 4 (successful) pairings of Joseph Cotten and Jennifer Jones. The latter receiving 3 Oscar nominations for her (their?) efforts (including this one). The debonair Cotten and the delightful Jones are perfectly cast. The title of the film provides the "connecting thread" for our seemingly doomed lovers. This mystery/love story is a "grabber" beginning to end. The film is a cornucopia of actions and emotions. The English countryside is very effective for this tale. The inevitability of their fates is obvious, but it's a very long and twisted road to get there....... and a very enjoyable road too...
Joseph Cotten at his best, Jennifer Jones at her best, and a fine supporting cast... A MUST SEE...
