She's still playing the sensitive supporting woman she is known for

playing. This time she's been "promoted" from Joseph Cotten's niece

to his wife. I wouldn't call this a great film, but it is a good one, the

old good guy tempted to go bad who makes the final right decision

close call scenario.
