Blanche Fury | 1948 | Valerie Hobson, Stewart Granger

Gothic tale Blanche Fury follows the title character (Valerie Hobson), a poor governess, as she marries into prosperity and establishes herself as the mistress of a large estate, only to begin a boiling romance with brooding stable-hand Philip Thorn (Stewart Granger). Thorn aspires to be the master of the estate, so he and Blanche plot to do away with her husband. The movie was based on the 1939 novel about the Rush Murders by Marjorie Bowen, who wrote under the nom de plume of Joseph Shearing.
