Cloris Leachman plays Rita Wallace, a photographer on assignment in France who wants to find a suitable face to feature in her fashion magazine. She rents out an old house in Paris and believes that the friendly landlady has sent such a person over to her, who is a seemingly friendly but nervous older man whose behavior becomes increasingly erratic, before he tries to kill her. She escapes, but is alarmed to learn that the landlady sent no such man to her place, and the suspect resembles a deceased man who had lived in the house - and murdered his wife... Effective tale is a bit ragged but atmospheric, with fine direction and memorable setting.
