Summary Margaret Lockwood devours the screen as a tightly wound seventeenth-century beauty with loose morals, who steals her best friend's wealthy fiance on the eve of their wedding. And that's only the beginning; there are no depths to which this sinful woman won't sink. James Mason costars as a highwayman with whom our anti-heroine becomes entangled.
