Film noir, a classic film style of the '40s and '50s, is noted for its dark themes, stark camera angles and high-contrast lighting. Comprising many of Hollywood's finest films, film noir tells realistic stories about crime, mystery, femmes fatales and moral conflict.|
A young wife is caught in a spiral of deceit, blackmail and murder. Terrified that her psychiatrist husband (Richard Conte) will learn of her frailty, Ann Sutton (Gene Tierney) attempts to cure herself with the help of hypnotist David Korvo (Jose Ferrer). However, Ann finds herself plunging deeper and deeper into a psychological abyss as Korvo, with a diabolical plan of his own, manipulates her subconscious mind.
