This is an extraordinary film noir! Claude Rains is, of course, simply one of the best actors to ever star in film and he excels as the master evil puppeteer of a family. The beautiful Audrey Totter is the spouse to the equally beautiful Hurd Hatfield ("The Picture of Dorian Gray") here. There are continuous plot twists and turns that keep you on the edge of your seat the entire film. Most interesting is the use of records through the film, both the recording of them and the playing of them in the commission of murder. Michael Curtiz crafts an almost perfect film in this one!
The Unsuspected (1947)
- James Higgins
71/100. Solid film-noir with Claude Rains delivering his usual stellar performance. Good mystery with stylish and effective cinematography. Audrey Totter gives a great supporting performance, in a role typical of her in the late 1940's. The entire cast is fine. Very entertaining.
As Usual Raines Steals The Show.
- cathy hansen
Fantastic cast, quintessential glossy 1940s glamour sets and costumes, great director (the eclectic Michael Curtiz)--& a creepy suspense. The versatile and fascinating Clude Raines gives a mesmerizing snake-like performance. Entertainment all round for film noir fans.
A true Warner brother's mystery film
This is one of the best---- all in the film do a spectacular job and of course Claude Rains at his best. Do not miss this one!!!
- alan melzak
a classic of film noir suspense from director Michael Curtiz
A true film noir gem. How sad that this film rarely turns up anywhere, when others seem to grab so much attention. Claude Rains is perfect as the suave, debonair villain, and Audrey Totter is simply succulent. This ought to be on video.
