An excellent cast (Charles Boyer, Jessica Tandy, Ann Blyth) in a Zoltan Korda film built from Aldous Huxley's adaptation of his short story "The Giocanda Smile".
Another film deserving of a slot in the ongoing 75th anniversary noir series playing out in various venues around the country...

The same night, Emily dies of her chronic heart disease, and Henry promptly marries Doris, to the chagrin of neighbor Janet Spence, who loves him.
