1949 / 88min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: MAX OPHÜLS

CAST: JAMES MASON, BARBARA BEL GEDDES, ROBERT RYAN

Barbara Bel Geddes’ fashion model seems to be living in a fantasy when she’s swept off her feet by Robert Ryan’s suave multimillionaire—whose character is based on Howard Hughes—but soon discovers that her husband is an egomaniacal and tyrannical tycoon who intends to treat her as another acquisition rather than as an equal. A potent proto-feminist melodrama/thriller, with James Mason in his American debut lending a shoulder to cry on.
