Twist of Fate Details


Ginger Rogers and her then-husband Jacques Bergerac costar in this British melodrama, released in the U.K. as The Beautiful Stranger. Impoverished showgirl "Johnny" Victor (Ginger Rogers) moves into the villa owned by her British millionaire sweetheart Louis Galt (Stanley Baker), who has promised to marry her once he secures a divorce from his present wife (yeah, sure). By and by, Johnny falls in love with equally impoverished French artist Pierre Clement (Jacques Bergerac). When Galt is killed, Johnny and Pierre find themselves the chief suspects, especially since all evidence points to them and them alone. Taking it on the lam, the two lovers are carefully monitored by the actual murderer, who was involved in a myriad of illegal activities with the late Mr. Galt. The film's title song, "Love From a Beautiful Stranger," was written by José Ferrer and Ketti Frings, respectively the star and screenwriter of the 1955 film Ketti Frings. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
