Rate this:
In 1920s London, brutal and bloodthirsty murder has stained the plush carpets of a handsome London townhouse. The victim is the glamorous and rich Emily French. All the evidence points to Leonard Vole, a young chancer to whom the heiress left her vast fortune and who ruthlessly took her life. At least, this is the story that Emily's dedicated housekeeper Janet Mcintyre stands by in court. Leonard however, is adamant that his partner, the enigmatic chorus girl Romaine, can prove his innocence.

This superior version is based on the original material and NOT from the play as is the supposed 1957 "classic". It is very atmospheric and dirty (like London would have been at that time) with a few flashbacks to WWI instead of the sanatized courtroom setting. Also, I never understood the obsession with Marlene Deitrich; I always found her to be quite creepy.
