Lots To Look At And Admire
The great scenery and colors of Niagara Falls, two very attractive
female leads, and an interesting story all add up to a very good rating
for this classic film.
The DVD offers a very nice print: sharp, with color restoration that
makes it look great. Niagara Falls never looked better (and I live just
25 miles away), and either did Marilyn Monroe or Jean Peters.
Everyone knows about Monroe's beauty (and, I think, underrated acting
talents) but Peters was a beautiful woman with a great body, herself.
She apparently fascinated billionaire Howard Hughes, too, since he
married her.) It's the men in here who are goofy: Cotten and his
whining and mental illness; Casey Adams with his nerd-ish personality
and Adams' boss Don Wilson, who is even more of a cornball.
This crime story is a suspenseful film with several twists and turns
and segments that keep you on the edge of your seat. It's film noir
material even though it's color which might disqualify it for some
The only weak points of the story were some very implausible
circumstances (i.e. Peters going into Joseph Cotten's room right after
he acted crazy and was someone obviously to leave alone; having a boat
"hijacked" in plain daylight, etc.)
As someone who has lived in Western New York for almost 60 years, it
was interesting to see the aerial shots on the Canadian side and see
the skyline of Niagara Falls and, in the distance, Buffalo..

Spectacular views of the Falls and Marilyn...
Marilyn Monroe in one of her earlier roles showed she had promise as a
dramatic actress that was never fully realized on screen. We all know she
was fine in comedies but she acquits herself well in the role of a young
wife anxious to rid herself of her jealous, mentally unstable husband
(Joseph Cotten) and plots with her lover to do so. The lovers are spotted by
another honeymooner (Jean Peters) who is drawn into the plot by
circumstances beyond her control.
Jean Peters is excellent as "the other woman", smart and strong-willed and
able to cope with the unstable husband when she has to. Joseph Cotten by
this time had played several stressed, shell-shocked veterans and does his
usual fine job here. Marilyn is garbed in her most revealing wardrobe and
makes the sluttish housewife a real and pitiful being by the time she
confronts her husband in the bell tower.
Atmospheric film noir type of story is well photographed for maximum effect
among the famous Falls. With swirling mists, choppy waters, bell tower
ringing ominously, and murderous intent--it's makes an absorbing,
fast-moving melodrama that is chillingly effective and at the same time
enjoyable to watch..
