The Reckless Moment

A noir-soaked drama based on a story, 'The Blank Wall', by Elisabeth Sanxay Holding. Joan Bennett stars as a mother who finds the body of her daughter's boyfriend in her boathouse. Fearing her daughter has murdered him, instead of calling the police, she hides the corpse, but it's not long before a shady friend of the man (James Mason), turns up with blackmail on his mind. Together they set off to get the money he wants, slowly warming to each other as time goes on. A top-notch suspenser, with a wicked twist, from master director, Max Ophuls. Remade in 2001, as 'The Deep End'.
