The Kiss Before the Mirror 1933
Paul Held a noted attorney in Vienna defends his best friend Walter Bernsdorf who is on trial for the murder of his wife Lucy. After hearing Walter's impassioned description of Lucy's infidelity and the events leading up to the murder, Paul returns home to his wife Maria. While she puts on her make-up in front of her vanity mirror, Paul recognizes a similarity to the events Walter had described in court, and notices that his wife appears to pay special attention to her make-up for reasons unconnected with her love for him. Paul kisses Maria, and she angrily repulses him, claiming he has ruined her make-up; then she casually goes out. Like Walter before him, Paul follows her and watches as she meets clandestinely with her lover. Paul plans to kill Maria and becomes obsessed with the idea of vindicating Walter by proving that his love for his wife made him crazed with jealousy when he saw her with another man.
