Beware, My Lovely

Not uninteresting woman in jeopardy thriller, worth a look for Lupino and Ryan: she as a lonely war widow, he as the itinerant handyman who suddenly goes funny, locks her up, and alternates unpredictable moods of tenderness and violence. Let down by broodingly sluggish direction (production designer Horner's debut) and by a script which gets bogged down in repetitive action instead of exploring the characters. The deliberately anticlimactic ending should have been much more effective than it is.
