A Life at Stake

A 1954 noir film starring Angela Lansbury, Keith Andes, Claudia Barrett among others. Edward Shaw (Keith Andes) is an out of work architect and having lost lot of money in his last business. He get a proposal to go into business with Doris Hillman (Angela Lansbury) of developing properties with his expertise and their money. She is married to a much older Gus Hillman who is ready to put up big money to finance the venture. Keith has some natural doubts about the venture, and that is buttressed when he meets Madge (Claudia Barrett) who spills the beans on Doris’s first marriage which ended when her husband drove off a hill and the insurance money came to Gus Hillman. From here on the story becomes interesting. Of the cast, Claudia Barrett has done a good role though even Angela has acted well for her part in the movie of a cool professional seductress. A good movie to watch.
