Midnight Lace (1960)

Film details


Suspense melodrama. Recently married, suave Englishman Tony Preston and his rich American wife Kit live in a plush Grosvenor Square duplex but his business concerns often keep them apart. One day Kit is menaced by a high-pitched voice during a thick fog in the square, and this is followed by filthy telephone calls in which the caller says Kit will be killed by the end of the month. As Kit begins to despair, her loved ones and Scotland Yard begin to wonder whether she is making up the menaces as the police inspector says neglected wives have been known to do. Yet there certainly is a mysterious stranger lurking nearby and the scaffolding on the building makes entry to the Preston's home an unhappy possibility.
