The haunting film adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe's The Mystery of Marie Roget stars Maria Montez and Patric Knowles.

Filled with suspense and intrigue, this gripping classic was inspired by a real-life unsolved murder.

Although Rosita seems to have died from tuberculosis, Ed keeps digging, discovering that there were many men in Rosita's life, and some of them were from the wrong side of the law.
