A man suffering from amnesia is revealed as an imposter when the doctor — whose place he has taken at a mental hospital — is found dead. A woman psychiatrist at the hospital, who has fallen in love with him, works with him to discover who he really is and to find out what happened to the deceased physician.
One of the earlier films to explore the area of psychoanalysis, brought to the screen with brilliant suspense and creativity by masters of their craft, including producer Selznick (who had a big interest in the subject), writer Ben Hecht, composer Miklós Rózsa (Academy Award winner) and director Hitchcock. There was a best picture nomination too, and the Academy was mentioned on much of the poster art as Ingrid Bergman had just won for her performance in the suspenseful Gaslight.
The romantic aura of the film is at the core of this poster presentation. This poster has been beautifully restored and cleaned.
