"[The film] nicely shows off the extensive use of location photography that was becoming a distinctive feature of the Fox house style during this period."

Description by

House on Telegraph Hill is an intriguing cliffhanger set in a spooky Victorian mansion below Coit Tower in San Francisco. Victoria Kowelska (Valentina Cortesa) has lived through World War II bombings and relocation camps, and has finally emigrated to San Francisco Bay. Now she should be blissfully happy with her devoted husband (Richard Basehart) in their mansion overlooking the San Francisco Bay. But Victoria is not who she seems, her child belongs to someone else, and her husband and housekeeper are frightening her half to death.

Product Description:

Richard Wise's (THE SOUND OF MUSIC) early film noir stars Valentina Cortese as Victoria Kowelska, a Polish woman who adopts the identity of a deceased friend so she can come to America after her release from a concentration camp. There, she discovers that she is the godmother of a very wealthy young boy, and stands to inherit a large sum. She also falls for the boy's guardian (Richard Basehart), until she discovers that his motives for courting her aren't what they seem.
