Quick Overview

Starring Linda Darnell, Charles Boyer, Michael Rennie, Constance Smith, Francoise Rosay

Directed by Otto Preminger



Print: black/white

Runtime: 85 min.

Genre: film-noir



A remake of the French Le Corbeau ("The Raven"), The Thirteenth Letter is a film noir in a

curious setting — a rural village deep in Quebec, seemingly sleepy and typical. Dr. Laurent

(Charles Boyer) returns from a medical convention in Montreal, anxious to see his much

younger wife, Cora (Constance Smith). Cora is attracted to Dr. Pearson (Michael Rennie), a

young doctor who moved into the town soon after his unfaithful wife killed herself. Soon

Pearson, Laurent and Cora all receive letters — signed "the Raven" — hinting at an affair

between Pearson and Cora. Soon more poison pen letters are showing up around town,

including one which insinuates that Pearson has not been telling the truth about the medical

condition of a wounded war hero. Distraught, the veteran takes his life, unaware that the

information in the letter was a lie. Meanwhile, Pearson has become attracted to Denise,

(Linda Darnell), a romance-starved young woman born with a clubfoot. As suspicion builds

about who is sending the letters — and about whether Pearson should be trusted — the

Mayor takes charge of the investigation, and Pearson doubles his efforts to prove his

innocence.
