After seeing Woman Obsessed, I realize that the Hollywood film industry lost such a talent when the great Susan Hayward died in March, 1975.
She epitomizes troubled women in one film after another. She was so good at it and Woman Obsessed is no exception.
As a remarried woman, still haunted by the tragic death of her first husband, Hayward shows mighty grit in this film with an on par terrific performance by Stephen Boyd, so great that year as Massala in Ben-Hur.
Boyd, as the second husband, appears bully-like in the treatment of Hayward's young son, who turns in quite a performance himself.
What made this flick so good was the wonderful compelling ending where reconciliation and good judgment come together.
***1/2 for a very good film.
