Synopsis

Experiment Perilous (1944) box art This clever but wordy suspense drama is expertly directed by talented Jacques Tourneur in the wake of the similar Gaslight. Here, it's insane husband Paul Lukas and glamorous wife Hedy Lamarr who are embroiled in a psychological battle of wits. George Brent plays the psychiatrist trying to rescue Lamarr, while Albert Dekker and Carl Esmond are also along for the ride. Written and produced by Warren Duff, and based on a bestseller by Margaret Carpenter, the movie is helped by the 1903 period art direction, which was Oscar nominated.
