Ingrid Bergman won the first of her three Oscars® for her portrayal of an innocent wife driven mad by a domineering and treacherous husband in George Cukor's Victorian-set psychological thriller. The Oscar®-winning production design and moody cinematography by Joseph Ruttenberg lend great atmosphere to the proceedings; the fine cast includes Charles Boyer as the charming but caddish husband, Joseph Cotten, Dame May Whitty and an 18-year-old Angela Lansbury in her Oscar®-nominated screen debut as a callow Cockney maid.
