Academy Award-winning psychological thriller stars Oscar-winner Ingrid Bergman ("Casablanca," "Anastasia") as a newlywed unaware that her seemingly charming husband, Charles Boyer ("Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse"), is a crazed murderer. After they move into her family's Victorian mansion, he schemes to drive her insane while he searches for a hidden cache of rubies. Chilling and suspenseful, it was nominated for Best Picture and Script. Bergman earned a well-deserved Oscar for her performance as the vulnerable heroine. Boyer and teenage Angela Lansbury (TV's "Murder, She Wrote," "National Velvet") each received nominations. Directed by the great Oscar-winner George Cukor ("My Fair Lady," "The Philadelphia Story"). With Joseph Cotton ("Citizen Kane," "The Magnificent Ambersons") and Oscar-nominee Dame May Whitty ("Mrs. Miniver").

This is a total Classic from the 1940's, Gaining Ingrid Bergman her first Academy Award, and a young Angela Lansbury her first Acting Role, and a Oscar Nomination to Boot! Making her a Star on her first Movie outing.
I cant praise this old Gem enough!!! Sadly though it will probably be lost on a Modern Audience, as there is no S****y R&B or Hip Hop sound track, and no T**s and A** either!
Ingrid Bergman and Charles Boyer are excellent in the lead roles - Bergman plays the victim well and she is never quite so weak as to be annoying - and it is good to see her fight back at the end. Watch how she handles a knife - is she crazy or not? It's my favourite scene in the film. Meanwhile, Boyer's face lends itself to an arrogance that has you disliking him from the start.
There is plenty of suspense and the film runs at a pace that has you forget that the film is almost 2 hours.
Charles Boyer's eyes are a thing of wonder!
Great performances by all the cast and a young Angela Lansbury (I bet she could have worked it if it were an episode Murder She Wrote) is wonderful - Gor blimey guvnor.
Bergman is stunning, if a little over the top or perhaps a little too hormonal, and steals the film.
Great fun and a brilliant twist near the end.
