  • searching an old crime movie: old mansion on cliffs above the sea, a female murderer

    hi, i have been looking for a criminal movie which I have seen in the eigthies on german television. In my opinion the movie was made in the fifties or sixties.
    Unfortunately, I only remember the closing sceen as follows:
    In an old villa situated above the sea ( below the house you can see cliffs in the water) a criminal investigater has just found giulty a woman who has conducted a crime, possibly a homicide. Both are standing in a room inside the house. In the room you can see a window with inside shutters. The woman has admitted her crime, and she asked the police officer to waite a moment outside the room and let her put together a few clothes to take to the prison. He is waiting outside the room.
    Sometime later when the woman does not come out of the room the investigater opens the locked door and runs into the room which is empty. The woman has jumped out of the window into the sea. You can see the window shutters moving forth and back. The police officer is looking out of the window at the storming sea. Thereafter other policemen are coming into the room shocked by her decision.
    Who can help me finding the name of the movie?

    Thank you with best wishes from Germany.

    Joanne Woodward jumps from a window into the mill-pond in Signpost to Murder (1964), but this doesn't quite match the OP's synopsis.

      Could it be Endless Night (1972)? It's on youtube.

        For some unaccountable reason Humphrey Bogart keeps popping into my mind, why I don't know and I'm probably way off !!:confused:

          You might be thinking of Dark Passage (1947), where Agnes Moorehead falls out of the window when confronted with Bogie's evidence of her committing murder, which is worthless without her signing the confession. It's set in San Francisco (hence the high buildings over the bay).

        That's the one I was thinking of. Ta.

          Glad to be of assistance. I have the film in my Bacall & Bogart collection.

        Thanks for all the answers. Unfortunately the movie I was looking for has not yet been found. But I'm not giving up hope.

          I looked everywhere on the internet to help you find your movie but I found nothing similar to the scene you've described. Sorry.
