In 1903, a curious doctor suspects murder within the wealthy Bederaux family.
Dir Jacques Tourneur
With Hedy Lamarr, George Brent, Paul Lukas
During a train ride Dr Huntington Bailey learns about a wealthy family, Nick Bederaux and his wife Allida (Lamarr). Intrigued by Allida’s mysterious behaviour, Dr Bailey becomes determined to uncover secrets from her past and help with her self-destructive tendencies, even at the risk of his own life. Usually typecast as glamorous heroines during this period, Lamarr took on a role that allowed her to show dramatic flair as a complex and vulnerable character.
