Movie producer Basehart is being stalked by former lover Murphy, who he claims to not recall at all. Is she just an exceptionally good con artist, or is he going mad from overwork?
Interesting, not entirely successful noir-ish film that fails mainly because of Basehart’s performance. When he’s mad he’s fine, when sane, sounds like an insurance salesman. Murphy and Livesey carry the film, though and make it quite watchable, along with some nice footage of Merton Park’s backlot (not Shepperton's, IMDb).
Producer Alec C. Snowden was credited as director on the American version, as Losey was still blacklisted in our freedom-loving country at the time. The parallels between Basehart's accused and Losey himself should be obvious to modern viewers.
Note: the IMDb listing for the uncredited roles on this film are completely muddled and make no sense. The credits shown here are accurate.The British version also runs some 11 minutes longer, mostly involving a scene where Basehart shows a workprint of his film Eclipse in his home. This accounts for Marianne Stone, at least.
