SYNOPSIS

‘By 1962, Lupino had amassed over 30 credits directing various TV shows – including two episodes of Alfred Hitchcock Presents – and would go on to direct dozens more throughout the 1960s before concluding her directorial career. During this incredibly fertile period, Lupino managed to secure directing credits on nine episodes of the relatively short-lived (1960–62) Boris Karloff-hosted anthology series, Thriller. This, the highly atmospheric penultimate Lupino-directed episode, is set in an unnamed Latin-American country, and tells the story of a woman (Mala Powers) who fakes her death to avoid an arranged marriage to a sadistic colonel.’ – Melbourne Cinémathèque
