Save it
Despite a silly cop-out ending (imposed by RKO), a gripping domestic thriller with Fontaine suitably nervy as the prim young woman who marries Grant, only to come increasingly to suspect that he intends to murder her. Marred by a blatantly artificial English countryside and by a somewhat clichéd story, it's nevertheless a supreme example of Grant's ability to be simultaneously charming and sinister, and of the director's skill with neat expressionistic touches (most notably, the glass of milk).
