Stage Fright (1950) DVD9
Wyman plays an aspiring actress, Eve Gill, that thinks she's in love with Jonathan Cooper (Richard Todd), who has told her that he's being pursued by the police because he's assisted Charlotte Inwood (Dietrich) in covering up a murder. Cooper says that Inwood murdered her husband and that he, as Charlotte's clandestine lover, was just trying to help her, e.g. by disposing of her blood stained dress, when he was seen by Inwood’s maid, escaping her premises. Wilding plays a police inspector named Smith who meets, and then falls in love with Eve, while investigating the crime and trying to find Cooper.
With help from her eccentric father Commodore Gill (Alastair Sim), Eve pretends to be a servant to get closer to the famous Inwood in order to "catch" her and prove Cooper's innocence.
