I think that it's The Shrike.  Jose Ferrer was the director/star, June Allyson was the leading lady who was cast against type and Saul Bass created the opening title sequence.

Thanks, Lavender.


Next:  When a scullery maid goes down to the cellar, she finds some dead rats on the floor (the rats had been poisoned). The poison came from a medicine bottle.

The recently deceased mistress of the house had been taking that medicine. The maid realizes that the woman had been intentionally poisoned.....by her own husband.

Later on, the master of the house looks in his late wife's jewelry box and sees that the jewels are missing.  He asks the maid about the jewels and she tells him that his wife had given them to her.  He accuses her of lying.

The maid tells him that she knows that he poisoned his wife.  To keep her quiet, he allows her to keep his late wife's jewels.  The maid asks him to promote her to the position of housekeeper and he grudgingly consents.

Footsteps In The Fog. Jean Simmons and Stewart Granger. Haven't seen this one in a few years, really like this film, good choice Azure ( would have gotten this one sooner, but haven't been on the bds. that much in the last few days)

Yes, that's correct. Great job, Lavender. Yes, this is a good film. The score for this film is absolutely beautiful. I hope that TCM shows this one again soon.

 

Your turn, Lavender.

The first thing that came to mind was a scene in How to Marry a Millionaire when Lauren Bacall  mentions "that old fellow what's-his-name in The African Queen".  Of course, she was referring to her then-husband Humphrey Bogart.   Is that what you were thinking of?

Thanks, Terrence. HTMAM is such a fun film.

:)

 

 

Next: Charlie Chaplin had a horrific time while making a certain film. A fire broke out at his studio, which delayed production for a month. During filming, Chaplin went through a very messy and highly publicized divorce. This very embarrassing ordeal severely tainted Chaplin's reputation and delayed production. Chaplin had to deal with several other major problems during production. It was a miracle that the film was ever completed.

 

What is the name of this film?

 

 

Edited to add: Chaplin's mother died during this time, too.
