This movie is based on a true story as written in A.P. Scotland's autobiography "The London Cage". The plot has greatly exaggerated the actual events of A.P. Scotland's experiences, including the addition of a fictional love interest.
Oliver Bramwell, an insurance inspector, arrives at Lewis Manor where he is to investigate a fire that broke out there on Christmas Eve. He rings the bell and to his amazement he finds himself face to face with Sarah, the woman he once loved in Hong Kong and who, one day, disappeared from his life without apparent reason. Love resurfaces and when Tracey, the owner of the manor and Sarah's husband, dies in a second fire, the couple is reunited. Nevertheless, Oliver suspects Sarah of having tricked him and murdered Tracey with a view to attaining her ends. Fortunately his suspicions are allayed and he can marry Sarah. They are first very happy, until a blackmailer starts preying on them...Written by
Screenwriters Frank Launder and Sidney Gilliat had optioned the original novel several years before this movie was made, but dropped the idea because of problems with the story. They were persuaded to resume work on the project when they made an arrangement with Columbia Pictures, but were never very satisfied with the result. Sidney Gilliat disliked the original title, "Fortune Is A Woman", but thought the American title, "She Played With Fire", was worse. After the movie was completed, Writer Val Valentine came up with a title they all liked ("Red Sky At Night"), but by then it was too late to change things. See more »
This is a fine adaptation of an original novel by Winston Graham. Most only know of Graham's 'Poldark' novels, however, he also penned thrillers and other historical novels many of which have been adapted for the screen. If you are a fan of 1950s British films and Jack Hawkins then this is for you.
