Who can resist handsome Danny (Robert Montgomery)? Not the girls in an English village abuzz over the discovery of a headless corpse. Not the rich, disagreeable old woman (Best Supporting Actress Oscar nominee Dame May Whitty) he works for. No one, except the old woman's niece (Rosalind Russell), who suspects that Danny's charming facade hides someone cold, calculating.and possibly mad. Based on Emlyn Williams' London and Broadway stage hit, Night Must Fall is a chilling, perfectly calibrated thriller that will have you checking the locks on the door as you ponder the contents of that hatbox Danny carries around. Montgomery, long typecast as the suave star of romantic comedies, earned a 1937 Best Actor Oscar® nomination for his harrowing, career-changing performance.
