Marilyn Monroe dazzles in her star-making turn as a devious femme fatale in this sultry tale of seduction and murder. While on vacation at Niagara Falls, Rose Loomis (Monroe) plots to murder her troubled husband (Joseph Cotten), arousing the suspicion of a young newlywed (Jean Peters) on her honeymoon. Stunningly shot on location, this rare color noir makes expressively lurid use of the Technicolor format.
