Murder in a suburban hotel: suspect is the British upper-class-woman Dorothy who’s accused of murdering her husband – a fraud who gained wealth with shoddy tricks. Dorothy’s memories unveil piece by piece the prelude to this act of desperation. A fatalistic silent movie-melodrama directed by Michael Kertesz (Curtis) who later gained fame for CASABLANCA. Restored by Filmarchiv Austria.
