Original Music by Ernest Gold

Agnes Langley (Ida Lupino) gets a job, through Jim Hollis (Howard Duff), as caretaker of an old, creepy and vacated estate. The owner's cousin, Jennifer, was the last occupant and mysteriously disappeared. Agnes soon begins to believe that Jennifer was murdered and that Jim, whom she has fallen in love with, is responsible.
The movie is atmospheric gothic film noir magnificence.This is a mostly unknown little gem that all film noir fans should see. Jennifer was filmed with the most unusual camera angles, which made the movie have a surreal like quality at times. It weaves an intriguing atmosphere and Ida Lupino and Howard Duff (real life man-and-wife at the time) display an alluring, low-key chemistry. Lupino plays a woman engaged to house-sit a vast California estate whose previous caretaker -- Jennifer -- up and disappeared. (Shades of Jack Nicholson in the Shining). Duff is the guy in town who manages the estate's finances and takes a shine to Lupino, who decides to play hard to get. She becomes more and more involved, not to say obsessed, with what happened to her predecessor in the old dark house full of descending stairways and locked cellars. The atmospherics and the romantic byplay are by far the best part of the movie. Extra added attraction: this is the film that introduced the song "Angel Eyes," which would become part of the standard repertoire of Ol' Blue Eyes.
