The Accused 1949
"The Accused" exploits fear and emotional violence into a high grade melodrama. The psychology of fear that builds in the heroine, causes her to act irrational and make wrong decisions. The screenplay is based on a novel "Be Still, My Love" by June Truesdell.
"The Accused" is Loretta Young, playing a college Psychology professor. One of her students is brash playboy Douglas Dick, who is determined to score with her prim but attractive teacher. Young stupidly goes on a date with Dick, and ends up killing him in self-defense. She then tries to make it look like a suicide.
Soon, police inspector Wendell Corey (whom you may remember in a similar role in "Rear Window") is on the job. Dick's lawyer, Robert Cummings, becomes romantically involved with Young. Student Suzanne Dalbert is the prime suspect, but eventually the focus is turned on Young.
