Whitfield Cook (adapted from a novel by Selwyn Jepson)
Jane Wyman stars as drama student Eve Gill who tries to clear a friend, John Cooper (Richard Todd), being framed for murder by becoming the maid of flamboyant stage star Charlotte Inwood (Marlene Dietrich). CooperÕs affair with Inwood has made him a suspect in the death of InwoodÕs husband. Hitchcock juggles elements of humor and whodunit and put his terrific ensemble (Alastair Sim, Sybil Thorndike, Joyce Grenfell, Kay Walsh and daughter Patricia Hitchcock) through its paces.
Jane Wyman, Marlene Dietrich, Michael Wilding
When Marlene Dietrich insisted that her wardrobe be done by fashion design house Dior, the studio provided the clothing and gave Dior a screen credit.
