This is a 1948 psychological thriller and modern updating of the Bluebeard fairytale directed by Fritz Lang.
Mark Lamphere, an architect, turns strange shortly after his honeymoon with bride Celia, who begins finding out that Mark has many secrets.
It turns out he was married before, his wife died suspiciously and they have a son.
He also has a fiercely loyal secretary, Miss Robey, whose face is disfigured.
Mark appears to be somewhat delusional and could be intending to murder Celia inside a room he keeps locked.
The disturbed Miss Robey ends up setting fire to the house, whereupon Mark redeems himself in Celia's eyes by saving her life.
This fire will certainly remind you of "Rebecca."
If Lang was not the director, this film could have been a real flop.
In any case, he evokes as much suspense as you can out of such nonsense.

Too absurd, with hubby's collection of 'murder rooms', and Joan Bennett's narration was too melodramatic. Not one of Fritz's better accomplishments, i.m.a.o.
