| This lady has issues!
When the story begins, Bedelia (Margaret Lockwood) is on her honeymoon with Charlie (Ian Hunter). They seem tremendously happy and there's only one odd thing you notice about her...she refuses to have her picture taken. This is weird and you'd think the husband would wonder if she's a wanted woman or something. But, he's in love and a bit hard-headed...and simply won't consider her to be anything other than the perfect wife. On this honeymoon, they meet an artist and he's much more than just an artist...it turns out he's investigating a case where a woman has murdered her husband for the insurance money....and he thinks Bedelia might be this lady. He also begins to suspect that there might have been more than just her one deceased husband!

This is a very good story and Lockwood is frightfully good. When things are going well for her, she's cool and manipulative. And, when things appear to be going badly, she's irrational, histrionic and like a caged beast. An interesting character study, to say the least. The rest of the cast is also quite good but perhaps the biggest star of all this are the writers...as the story is engaging, exciting and kept my interest throughout. Well worth your time.
