Stewart Granger is the recently widowed Londoner Stephen Lowry in this lovely little Victorian Noir. His housemaid Lily (played by Jean Simmons) confronts Lowry with the knowledge that the former Mrs. Lowry was poisoned, securing herself a better position among the household staff, and eventually, in Lowry's arms. Eventually, the threat of blackmail is too much for Lowry, and both he and Lily struggle to gain the control of the situation - with fatal results.

Comments

Footsteps in the Fog was one of the first 100 titles released by Sony Pictures through their new made-on-demand service "Screen Classics by Request" back in September. The British Gothic noir-drama is presented in a progressive anamorphically enhanced transfer on this single-layered disc. The colors are attractive, although one memorable scene in a fog (capture 4) suffers from the low bitrate. English mono soundtrack is fine, although like any other MOD discs, it's not subtitled or closed-captioned.

There is an original theatrical trailer provided for your enjoyment. There is also a region 2 release of this film from Sony Pictures in UK (HERE) which is currently very cheap at Amazon.co.uk, but we don't own it to compare the two versions.
