EmanuelLevy.Com - 7/10 by Emanuel LevyTourneur's well crafted suspense thriller about a scary husband menacing his wife (Hedy Lamarr) bears thematic resemblance to the far superior Gaslight, by George Cukor, for which Ingrid Bergman won an Oscar.
User Review - 8/10 by jay nPleasingly sinister and slightly fruity melodrama set in New Yoick at the turn of the 20th century. A suave and very Hungarian Paul Lukas tries to convince psychiatrist George Brent that his missus Hedley, sorry, Hedy Lamarr is bonkers (technical term) but is she? Director Jacques Tourneur was a dab hand at films like this and he doesn't disappoint, putting together an entertaining and diverting piece of nonsense which looks splendid - the set design and swirling snowstorms help in creating a hedley, sorry, heady atmosphere. It's not all out of the top drawer though: George Brent's performance is as woody as the non-business end of asparagus but even that is quite charming. And the music is a bit intrusive at times. Someone really should have told the orchestra to go pianissimo.
User Review - 6/10 by Suvi LLoved the mood in this and occasional dark moments but otherwise nothing outstanding.
User Review - 6/10 by Bastien MCertainly an offbeat direction for the studio era, this romantic mystery is full of tension, although it lacks some coherance.
User Review - 6/10 by Scott RSome good stuff, but short of a whole film.
User Review - 6/10 by Petros SWell-directed by Tourneur and with a great look, but it's a lesser "Gaslight", just so you know that.
User Review - 6/10 by Vincent BTourneur transcende un mélo semi-policier en un véritable jeu de faux semblant. Intéressant.
User Review - 4/10 by Allan CMeh. Boring story about George Brent trying to rescue the beautiful Hedy Lemarr from here husband who is trying to make her think she's insane. The only real saving grace of this melodrama is that director Jacques Tourneur does manage to inject a fair amount style into the film, with quite a few striking shots and sequences sprinkled throughout the film.
