Jeanne Eagels earned the first posthumous Academy Award nomination for an actor for her performance in this searing adaptation of W. Somerset Maugham's play, one of only two sound films the actress made before her death. Eagels plays the adulterous Leslie Crosbie, a woman on trial for the murder of her husband, whose fate may be determined by a mysterious tell-all letter she wrote to her lover. With O.P. Heggie, Reginald Owen, Herbert Marshall. 60 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
