Richard is a novelist who rushes into marriage with beautiful socialite Ellen. Their fairytale turns to nightmare when Ellen reveals a mean streak. Morbidly jealous and desperate for attention, she allows no competitors for Richard’s love. A favourite of Martin Scorsese: ‘the perfect film noir – in technicolor’.
