Kit Preston (Doris Day) is an American expatriate living in London with her husband, a financier named Tony Preston (Rex Harrison).  One evening while walking she begins to hear a strange, electronic voice warning of her impending death.  She is startled and informs Tony and her friends, who brush it off as a mere hallucination.


Later, an individual with the same voice phones Kit and again threatens to kill her.  Scotland Yard investigates, but like her friends, assumes she is just a lonely housewife.  The calls and other strange occurrences continue; is Kit truly going mad, or is someone genuinely seeking to kill her?


Midnight Lace was nominated for an Oscar and a Golden Globe.
