Faces in the Dark is a 1960 black and white British thriller film directed by David Eady and starring John Gregson, Mai Zetterling and John Ireland.[1] The film is based on the 1952 novel Les Visages de l'ombre by Boileau-Narcejac.[2]

It was shot at Shepperton Studios with sets designed by the art director Anthony Masters.[1]


Richard Hammond, an aggressive and ambitious business mogul and inventor, with little or no time for his wife, friends or family, is blinded in an explosion, on the same day which his long-suffering wife had planned to leave him. he becomes even more bitter at life.

His wife is a devious woman, and is plotting with her lover in an attempt to make her husband think he's going insane, in the hope that he will take his own life and leave them free to pursue their illicit affair in peace.[3]

Because he is blind when he encounters the lovers in bed the man just has to stay silent to evade detection.

Hammond gets wise to their plan.


Critical reception

The Radio Times wrote "this tale of blindness and rage should have been a real nail-biter. Sadly, ex-documentary director David Eady simply doesn't have the thriller instinct and throws away countless opportunities to make the tension unbearable."[4] However, TV Guide wrote that "The film has some pot-holes, but the chilling climax is smooth as glass";[5] and Allmovie noted "Although there may be a few minor gaps here and there in the storyline, Faces in the Dark is a suspenseful drama."[6]
