Director Alfred Hitchcock shot this film about a love triangle in 1830s Australia in long takes, à la ROPE, to explore the motivations of some very complex characters. Joseph Cotten is an Irish ex-convict turned successful landowner; Ingrid Bergman is his wife, being pushed toward alcohol-induced delirium until childhood acquaintance Michael Wilding appears. Jack Cardiff provides the striking Technicolor cinematography.
Confederate officer Joseph Cotten and his three sons escort a hero’s coffin home despite Union patrols, banditos, vengeful Indians, a stalking posse, and a buttinsky reverend - only trouble is, the coffin’s packed with stolen greenbacks intended to rejuvenate the cause. In English.
