Description by OLDIES.com:
Hedy Lamarr is Madeleine Damien, a gorgeous and sophisticated fashion editor living life in the fast lane in an age when "good girls didn't." Depressed by her tarnished reputation, she deliberately crashes her car into a tree and lands on a psychiatrist's couch. Encouraged to change her ways, she starts over with a new name and a new career. She falls in love with a young doctor (Dennis O'Keefe) but her past-life returns to haunt her. Dragged into her old party-girl habits by former coworkers, Madeleine goes home one night with an ex-lover. When he turns up murdered, she finds herself the prime suspect. A courtroom trial follows, and Madeleine is forced to fight for her life.
Edmund North's gripping screenplay is based on the much-publicized murder trial of Madeleine Smith, a young Scottish woman accused of murdering her lover in 1857. David Lean also told the story of this reputed "Trial of the Century" in his 1950 film, Madeleine.
An intense drama that explores the secret turmoil of an art director of a glamorous women's magazine who desperately trying to outrun her true identity while under suspicion of murder.
