Ann Hamilton, daughter of a little-known college professor, falls in love with wealthy, dynamic industrialist Alan Garroway. When they marry, she is not immediately accepted into his social status, but the couple are happy just the same. After a while, Ann discovers that Alan has a brother whom he never mentions and will not discuss. In time, his behavior becomes strange and frightening.

Critics' reviews

Bosley Crowther The New York Times 1946
"Miss Hepburn gives a crisp and taut performance. Mr. Taylor accelerates a brooding meanness. For Vincente Minnelli, the director, has used atmosphere and mood to build up some rather fateful moments in which you wait for the unknown to occur."

Dave Kehr Chicago Reader
"A minor but interesting film from Vincente Minnelli's journeyman period at MGM. Katharine Hepburn is a new bride who gradually grows suspicious of her husband (Robert Taylor) and his menacing brother (Robert Mitchum). Some enterprising feminist critic ought to do a study of this 'deadly spouse' genre, which has proved to be amazingly popular from Gaslight to The Stepford Wives and beyond."
