Alfred Hitchcock directs the legendary Marlene Dietrich and Academy Award winner Jane Wyman in a thriller set in the world of the London stage, a place where few people are who they seem and only two things are real--murder and Stage Fright. When witnesses see Jonathan Cooper (Richard Todd) fleeing the scene of a murder, Cooper asks his former girlfriend, Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts student Eve Gill (Wyman), for help. Believing him innocent, she uses her skills at stagecraft to prove the real murderer is chanteuse Charlotte Inwood (Dietrich). Now, as Eve plays a game of cat and mouse with Scotland Yard detective Wil Smith (Michael Wilding), she has no clue of the deadly secret her sleuthing will uncover.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Hitchcock conjures a deep-rooted, irony-rich complicity of father and daughter that seems borrowed from the films of Howard Hawks and suggests the inner compass that helps to guard against chasing the wrong man.
