A story about manipulation
Verified purchase
Finger of Guilt is about manipulation. Richard Basehart is a successful British movie executive who starts getting letters from Mary Murphy claiming a previous affair. He claims it’s blackmail but it may be part of his controversial past. It’s a good drama that drew me in to see what was behind Murphy’s story and what Basehart was willing to do about it. The end has some great shadowing and Murphy gives Basehart a look that is to die for.

Good acting from Richard Basehart
Verified purchase
This film has an interesting story line, in that it leaves viewers looking for clues as to why a woman claims a studio ex had been her lover -- and she knew so many details about him, but he has no idea who she is. The film is a bit slow moving, but I wanted to find out how it resolved! Richard Basehart does a fine job as the main character -- in expressing his anger and his confusion, as well as his resolve to not go down a wrong path and lose the trust of his wife.

This is directed by Joseph Losey who had a very long career in the U.S. and then the U.K. I love two of his other films from the 1960s starring Dirk Bogarde: "Accident" and "The Servant." "Finger of Guilt" pales in comparison, but it's still a good story and worth 90 minutes of one's time!

It’s a tidy little 50’s British Pulp Fiction.
Verified purchase
It has some flaws like a poor film copy and a tiny picture format but the plot is simple, it works and the viewer is left in the dark to guess until the end. Though it plays like a TV movie and there’s not much to it but what you see is just enough to make a low budget movie work.

No Alfred Hitchcock, but not bad
Verified purchase
A little cheesy, and it wasn't Hitchcock, but then again, who is?! I recommend it, though.
