***1/2. Just released in Blu-Ray. I love Joan Bennett's hoarse voice here, I love how the director plays with mirrors and problems caused by reflection and I love how the director tells us that misunderstandings can be either funny either dramatic. Paul Henreid wants to control everything but his whole journey is marked by fate. Strongly recommended.
Cinematography by John Alton. Another refugee from Nazism in the US, after all, a substantial part of the great history of shadows and light that made that film industry in the 40s. Like some of his exile colleagues, Sekey was "tidied" to the production of B movies, which actually was convenient to their synthesizing capacity of studio values with imaginative arguments, as is in this immense case.
