Film historians tend to cite this film (regarded as the worst film made by MGM to that time) as the point where Loew's Inc. chairman Nicholas Schenck lost confidence in Louis B. Mayer's leadership. Schenck would soon bring producer Dore Schary back to the studio from RKO and groom him as Mayer's replacement. See more »
Enjoyed this Classic B&W film with a fisherman's house of stone build high on a hill top, over looking the ocean and a very rocky coast line and plenty of fog. It starts out with Greer Garson,(Marise Aubert)," Strange Lady in Town",'55, who is see a shrink and has many flash backs. They show two soldier's in the war, one being Richard Hart(Jean Renaud),"Green Dolphin Street",'47 and Robert Mitchem,(Paul Aubert),"Cape Fear",'91, Paul is married to Marise Aubert and Jean Renaud is a very close friend. Paul shares a great deal of information about his wife with Jean. Eventually the story unfolds and you start to realize there is a rather twisted and demented brain trying to work out an evil plan. George Zucco,(Father Donnard),"Lured",'47, confronts the evil force and tries to bring shame upon the guilty person involved. It was refreshing not seeing George Zucco play his usual roles in the many horror pictures he appeared in. All the actors gave outstanding performances and this is a really worth while film to view and enjoy.
