Another Man’s Poison (1952)

This thriller-melodrama isn’t a film noir and despite its clockwork plot it’s not a mystery either. Based on a stageplay, Another Man’s Poison follows mystery novelist Janet Preston’s (Bette Davis) increasingly desperate attempts to conceal the murder of her husband. The arrival of a shady associate complicates matters immensely. A great performance by Bette Davis.
