While on vacation in Mexico, Celia Barrett (played by Joan Bennett), a wealthy New York magazine editor, meets the intriguing and somewhat mysterious architect Mark Lamphere (played by Michael Redgrave). The two fall in love quickly, and Celia, enchanted by Mark’s charm, marries him in a whirlwind romance.
After their marriage, the newlyweds return to Mark’s vast estate in New York. Here, Celia begins to realize that Mark has a lot of secrets. She’s introduced to Mark’s son David (from a previous marriage) and his loyal secretary Miss Robey (played by Anne Revere), both of whom exhibit strange behaviors. The mansion itself is unusual: Mark has a hobby of recreating rooms where famous historical murders took place, but one room is kept locked at all times, arousing Celia’s curiosity and suspicion.
As Celia spends more time in the house, she starts noticing Mark’s erratic behavior. He seems to be haunted by his past, particularly concerning the mysterious circumstances of his first wife’s death. The locked room becomes an obsession for Celia, who believes that the secret to Mark’s past and his true nature lies beyond its door.
With the help of her friend and a psychiatrist, Celia delves deeper into Mark’s past and his psychological trauma. She discovers that Mark suffers from an Oedipal complex, stemming from a traumatic childhood incident involving his mother. As the truth unravels, Celia’s own life becomes endangered.
The climax of the film sees a confrontation between Celia, Mark, and the secrets of the locked room, as they grapple with the truths of their relationship and the dark facets of the human psyche.
Drawing heavily from Gothic romantic themes and the psychological suspense style popularized by films like Alfred Hitchcock’s “Rebecca,” “Secret Beyond the Door” is a dark, atmospheric tale of love, mistrust, and the mysteries of the human mind.
