The first film-noir directed by legendary filmmaker Anthony Mann (T-Men, The Naked Spur) - A Marine sergeant (William Terry) stationed overseas falls in love with a woman only through correspondence. On the train back home, he meets a beautiful young doctor (Virginia Grey) who's starting a new practice in the same small town. Once in town, he finds his pen pal's place of residence, but to his surprise he only finds the girl's mother (Helen Thimig) living at the old mansion with her servant (Edith Barrett) - The old woman informs him that her daughter has gone away and will return shortly, but asks him to stay at the mansion until her return. This gothic and haunting mystery in the tradition of Hitchcock's Rebecca was beautifully shot Reggie Lanning (Hoodlum Empire).

Wilder, Ford, and Hitchcock is beyond my comprehension.
Don't expect T Men or Naked Spur.......this film is not at that level..........If you are a fan of Mann's movies, this is a must have as you can see several tropes that are used in later better known films............if you have no idea who Anthony Mann is get Naked Spur and watch it first..................if you like it like I think you will, you will want to see every movie he ever made:)
Olive films has put out a VERY nice looking transfer of this movie........I wish TMen and some of his other early noirs looked this good on DVD.. .
