Tyrannical but ailing tycoon Charles Richmond (Ralph Richardson, The Fallen Idol) becomes obsessed with his attractive nurse, Maria (Gina Lollobrigida, Buona Sera, Mrs. Campbell). The nurse, in turn, falls in love with Charles' money-hungry nephew, Anthony (Sean Connery, The Offence), who plots ways to gain control of his uncle's fortune. This stylish and suspenseful thriller was beautiful shot by the legendary Otto Heller (Peeping Tom) and wonderfully directed by the great Basil Dearden (The League of Gentlemen).
