A woman and man meet on the train to a ranch in New Mexico where they both happen to be staying. She’s a socialite and daddy’s girl who happens to be going to the ranch to scatter her beloved fathers ashes, he’s an author going there to write in the peace and quiet. He reminds her of her late dead father – when he was younger of course….therein begins a tale of obsession jealousy and possessiveness which has unpredictable consequences on all concerned.

From the Ben Ames Williams novel comes this breathtakingly photographed in Technicolor melodrama in every sense of the word – or call it a colour noir par excellence! Tightly plotted, brilliantly acted this drama swirling with human emotion will hold you in it’s grip from start to finish. Presented in a new, stunning restoration only fully realised in all it’s Technicolored glory on the big screen!
