I walked with a Zombie (1943)
Common to many B films at the time, the script of this film was written after the title was created. In this movie directed by Jacques Tourneur (1904–1977), Betsy Connell (Frances Dee, 1910–2004) is sent to a West Indian Island to care for Jessica (Christine Gordon). She is the wife of plantation owner Paul Holland (Tom Conway, 1904–1967) who mysteriously becomes ill and cannot speak. Betsy falls in love with Paul as she continues caring for Jessica. When Betsy brings Jessica to a voodoo priest in order to help her, the local voodoo priests suspect her of being a zombie.
