See Ingrid Bergman at her most luminous in this tale of a woman being driven mad by her husband’s duplicitous behavior and a secret “which he will do anything to protect, even if that means driving his wife insane.” – imdb.com. Angela Lansbury got her big break in this film playing the blowsy downstairs maid! 114 minutes. Unrated.

Love may go wrong; lovers may come and go – but what happens on the silver screen is forever.
