Marilyn Monroe smoulders as a deadly femme fatale with murder on her mind in this Technicolor thriller.

Monroe turns in her finest acting performance yet.

The Hollywood Reporter

Happy-go-lucky newlyweds Ray (Max Showalter) and Polly (Jean Peters) head north to the Niagara Falls for their long-overdue honeymoon. On the precipice of the spectacular waterfall sits a holiday bungalow where they meet the vivacious blonde Rose (Monroe) and her husband, George (Joseph Cotten), a world-weary shut-in.

Unbeknownst to their innocent new friends, Rose is devising the perfect plan to escape the clutches of her controlling husband. But just when it seems Rose is in the clear, she wakes to a shocking new reality.
