No plot summary here, just watch this film and if you're a film buff and love the old films, here ya go. You'll become fascinated and addicted to Charles Laughton, who is one of the greatest actors to ever appear in films. He breathes so much life and brings so much nuance into this role that it's supernatural.

Unhappily married to bitter woman who refuses to divorce him, an aging Londoner is eventually driven to kill his wife; he succeeds in staging the death as an accident, but a rugged detective declines to let the matter go in this Robert Siodmak thriller. The film features some great directional touches, such as how Siodmak refrains from showing us the murder, instead leaving everything implied by the protagonist simply grabbing a cane and looking up a staircase in deep thought. What really makes the film work though is Charles Laughton's measured lead performance. Through the gentlest of eye movements and subtlest vocal inflections, Laughton manages to render his character so human and down-to-earth that it is easy to root for him throughout, even when he commits unspeakable acts. His battle of wits with the detective are very good too, with Laughton positioned to bluntly state "why don't you arrest me?" after being hounded so relentlessly by the policeman. The supporting cast is not quite up to Laughton's level, with Rosalind Ivan very one-note as his wife in a performance that only requires her to be shrill. The film is also rather slow to warm up with around half an hour elapsing before the murder. Once the film gets going though, it never lets up. It is simply enthralling to watch and the suggestive final shot provides a pitch perfect note for the film to end on.

The 1940s were inspired by the 1900s - look at the clothes. They did this period very well. And a lot of that heavy Victorian furniture was probably still around. The clothes and and decor play an important part - note the depressing mahogany of the Marshalls&#39; house.<br/><br/>Ella Raine and Charles Laughton are great, as is Rosalind Ivan as the vicious wife. But isn&#39;t it rather odd that this bourgeois household has not one single servant? Once the first Mrs Marshall has conveniently departed this life, Mrs Marshall II seems to do all her own cooking and housework, and invites visitors into the kitchen.<br/><br/>This is clearly intended to be London, but apart from Charles Laughton and Henry Daniell (as the alcoholic no-account neighbour) everybody speaks American. It&#39;s also odd that son John falls for such an irritating girl, with distinctly déclassé parents.<br/><br/>Viewable on youtube - not on DVD? And how about it, Talking Pictures?
