When Gary Merrill's partner in murder rolls the car over the cliff containing the body of the actress impersonating Merrill's wife the Triumph TR4 they arrived in turns into a 4 door sedan at the bottom of the cliff. See more »
Gary Merrill plays the husband of a rich woman (Georgina Cookson), who apparently keeps him around for hot sex. She can also put herself into trances, which is probably how she gets through the sex with Merrill. Cookson's gorgeous niece (Jane Merrow) shows up, and Merrill decides he wants to get it on with her. Merrill and his business partner cook up a scheme to off Cookson. After Merrill does the deed, he buries his wife in the pottery shed. Then they hire an actress to impersonate Cookson, so everyone else will think she went to Italy. Then the actress is offed as well. With Merrill and Merrow alone in his dead wife's house, strange events start occurring. Is it Cookson, back from the dead? Is she not really dead? Is someone playing a trick?
The film works, despite the weird casting. It would have worked better with someone younger (and better looking) than Merrill. No one on the planet should believe a babe like Jane Merrow would go for this guy. He is in serious need of some eyebrow trimming, which would at least diminish his Cro-Magnon looks. And Cookson looks like John "One Step Beyond" Newland in a dress and wig. Merrow is worth watching, of course.
