The House on Telegraph Hill is a 1951 film noir drama directed by Robert Wise. A woman known as Karin (Valentina Cortese) emigrated to the United States to escape the horrors of Belsen, a concentration camp during World War II. Now, in stark contrast to the pain she suffered during the war, her life seems to be perfect. Karin married Alan Spender (Richard Basehart), the family lawyer who interviewed her when she first arrived at San Francisco. They live in a beautiful though slightly derelict Victorian mansion in the heart of the city, together with Karin's young son, Christopher (Gordon Gebert), and the housekeeper, Margaret (Fay Baker). Karin should be happy, but instead she is constantly looking over her shoulder. Both Margaret and Alan seem to be acting strangely, and Karin notices that she is running into some odd and potentially fatal bad luck lately. With the help of her friend, Major Marc Bennett (William Lundigan), Karin hopes to figure out her husband's plot before it is too late. However, she has some startling secrets of her own, including her true identity.moreless
