highly entertaining despite the cheesy title
9 February 2006 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When you see a title that begins with the phrase "I Married,...", you might be tempted to think that this will be a cheesy exploitation movie, but this movie and I MARRIED A MONSTER FROM OUTER SPACE are two movies with titles like this that are well worth watching. Robert Ryan plays a communist spy set on the destruction of America. His lovely new bride at first suspects nothing. However, as the movie continues, more and more clues appear until it is obvious Ryan isn't the man she thought he was. So, when this occurs, Ryan is ordered to murder her--setting up an excellent conclusion.

This movie came out during the "Red Scare" of the late 1940s-50s. Considering that the Cold War just began, it's an excellent and very interesting piece of pro-West propaganda and a good job of it, as well.
