Description by OLDIES.com:
Dr. Hunt Bailey (George Brent) is fascinated by a portrait of breathtaking Allida Bedereaux (Hedy Lamarr) - and with the woman herself. Fragile and frightened, Allida confides to him that she and her young son are in great peril. Her husband (Paul Lukas) insists she is insane. And around them, people mysteriously die. Director Jacques Tourneur (Cat People, Out of the Past) brings his celebrated mastery of shadowy menace to this absorbing tale of madness and murder in an outwardly genteel world of wealth. Follow Dr. Bailey as he searches for the truth. And, like him, don't believe everything you are told.
A famous psychiatrist (Brent) becomes involved with a beautiful new patient (Lamarr) who happens to be married to a very rich and jealous man (Lukas). She fears her husband and when Brent comes to spirit her away, the angry husband lashes out with deadly consequences.
