Blanche Fury

Stewart Granger is excellent in this 1948 British noir, BLANCHE FURY. Keaney liked it too giving it a high 3.5.

Blanche Fury combined two elements that were surefire moneymakers in postwar Britain: a brooding, Gothic-novel storyline and the handsome Stewart Granger. Heroine Blanche Fury (Valerie Hobson) is an impoverished governess who marries into wealth and sets herself up as the mistress of a vast estate. Enter stable boy Philip Thorn (Granger), who intends to run the estate and eventually claim Blanche as his own. Oddly, despite its $1.5 million price tag, above average performances and excellent Technicolor cinematography, Blanche Fury was a box-office disappointment, bringing an end to the "Gothic cycle" that had begun so promisingly with 1943's The Man in Grey.

I think you'll enjoy this one. Runs 90 minutes and keeps you engaged.
