This British movie from 1947 has a tight plot but suffers from resembling too much the stage play it came from. The actors seemed as fenced in as they would on a smallish stage. Cramped indeed,
When a man returns from an extended overseas trip to discover his wife is having an affair, he decides to murder her lover and pin the crime on another lover. Greta Gynt makes a good femme fatale and Eric Portman, a decent murderer, but far too many scenes rely on lengthy explications with the actors standing there expectantly.
