Description by OLDIES.com:
Still recovering from the tragic death of his fiance, Jeffrey (Robert Young) finds happiness again when he meets his new neighbor, Ellen (Betsy Drake). The two quickly fall for each other, even though death and destruction comes to everything the man loves. Afraid that she will meet the same violent death as those around him, Jeffrey begins to push her away. The young woman discovers that these fatal "accidents" are actually deliberate acts and his doctor suspects that Jeffrey is suffering from mental illness and is committing the murders in a self-destructive blackout. Unable to believe that he is capable of such brutality, Ellen chases through a labyrinth of deceit to discover the motive behind the killings.
Robert Young (FATHER KNOWS BEST) stars here as Jeff Cohalan, a young man whose wife was murdered while they were on their honeymoon, and who is plagued by strange accidents and visions of her death. He meets a beautiful young woman on a train, Ellen (Drake), and it becomes apparent that the two are very attracted to one another. Ellen soon learns about Jeff's past and is quickly drawn into his strange dark world, even when she begins to realize that Jeff may be much more dangerous than he seems. A stylish and riveting noirish thriller, THE SECOND WOMAN is an unjustly forgotten classic of the genre.
