Olivia Harwood, missionary's widow, meets charming Mark Bellis, artist and rogue, on the ship taking them both back to 1890s London. When Olivia opens a lodging house Mark becomes her lodger, then her lover. Olivia falls so completely under amoral Mark's spell that he's able to overcome her scruples, and soon she's his willing tool in an ambitious scheme of theft and blackmail...maybe too ambitious.Written by

When Mark is painting Olivia's portrait, her necklace beads are not all twisted together; there are two strands that are hanging separately. When they move away from the portrait, the necklace strings are all uniformly twisted together with no strands hanging loose. See more »
Oh, Mark! You say things so prettily. But I never quite know what's going on inside your head.
One day I'll tell you. You may not like it.

"This is a true story... one of the strangest chapters in the annals of crime. Its characters lived more than fifty years ago... the leading figures in a passionate game of love and murder. It began on a sailing vessel homeward bound from the West Indies for Liverpool..." See more »
Moves pretty slowly. Mark (Ray Milland) meets Olivia (Ann Todd), and becomes a border at her boarding house... but is he really good, or up to no good? Mark is suspected of murder, but the police want to find evidence before they can move in. and then things get even more complicated. Milland had just won the oscar for Lost Weekend in 1946. About the only other big name I recognized in here is Hugh Griffith, who was hilarious in "Start the Rvolution without Me". Here, he's the coroner, twenty years before "Revolution". Griffith will win an oscar in 1960 for Ben Hur. Novel by Gabrielle Long, who had written TONS of things under various names. Many of her projects were turned into films or television shows. and this one produced by Hall Wallis, who had produced all the Elvis films. Directed by Lewis Allen.. he had worked with Milland on four films in the 1940s. This one is okay. We wait until the very until to find out if justice is served! Shows now and then on Turner Classics.
