OBSESSED (1951) (BLU-RAY)

Boasting a beautiful 4K restoration, the 1951 suspense thriller Obsessed starring Geraldine Fitzgerald and David Farrar makes its Blu-ray debut from ClassicFlix!

Bedridden and ailing for several years, it was no surprise when death came to wealthy dowager Edwina Black. The late Mrs. Black, however, will not be mourned by most of the community in the small English village where she resided—certainly not by her henpecked husband Gregory (Farrar), the town's schoolmaster, nor her female companion Elizabeth (Fitzgerald), both of whom are relieved at finally being free to express their love after conducting a not-so-secret affair for some time.

But when the town doctor (Harcourt Williams) conducts a post-mortem, death by natural causes is ruled out as he found large traces of arsenic in Edwina's remains. Inspector Martin of Scotland Yard (Roland Culver) suspects that the couple engaged in a bit of foul play and patiently plays a game of cat-and-mouse in hopes of implicating them in the crime. Ellen (Jean Cadell), Edwina's fiercely loyal housekeeper, also figures in and makes no secret of her contempt for the two lovers and their likely roles in the death of her mistress.

Based on the 1949 stage play The Late Edwina Black (and released in 1951 in the U.K. under the same name), Obsessed is directed by Maurice Elvey (The Clairvoyant) and features several twists and turns in its narrative while granting character veteran Culver a particularly droll turn as the determined Scotland Yard inspector.
