In order to get his hands on his wife Margot's fortune, Tony hires a hitman to "break into" their apartment and kill her. But when Margot, thinking the man is a burglar, stabs him to death, Tony comes up with a new scheme: framing his spouse for first-degree murder.
Intriguing cinematic adaptation of Frederick Knott's play about a woman who slowly comes to realize that her husband is trying to murder her.
Filmed in WarnerColor. It was shot in 3-D, but not originally released in that format; the 3-D version has subsequently been screened in various art movie houses.
