Richard Carlson is "Tormented," in this Bert I. gordon production that features 3 Stooges regular Gene Roth in a small role. essentially a film noir ghost story, Carlson portrays a fiance that had another girl on the side. The other girl falls to her death and haunts the upcoming nupitials.
Released in 1960, "Tormented" is at the syntax of two decades. Carlson is a jazz pianist and his future father-in-law is prejudiced against musicians, hoping that his daughter would marry a man with a real job. There is a nice touch with a little girl who is Carlson's best friend, who makes the transition from innocence to horrid maturity.
