No movie has ever delved into the psychic essences of its three main characters as this claustrophobic thriller has succeeded in doing. Robert Newton is astoninshing and the actor playing Bill Kronin is even better, but Sally Grey's Storm has got to be one of the most memorable faithless wives in the history of filmdom -- definitely a role model.
