Leave Her to Heaven (1946)
It's a gorgeous film, bouncing between Taos, New Mexico and northern Maine, building a steadily-progressing aura of dread. The film falters toward the end, during a courtroom scene with a histrionic Vincent Price. And while John Stahl does a nice job directing, it's hard to not imagine what Hitchcock might have done with this material.
