Edward G. Robinson,
At one point, Dr Beighley shows colleagues some amateur home movies demonstrating her interacting with animals at a zoo. Although quality of film is unpolished, supposedly amateurish film is heavily-edited, filled with reverse angles, close-ups, inserts, etc. that is clearly the work of a professional film crew, not simply a photographic record on a home movie camera.

This movie is one of those that's great to watch in the dark with popcorn, on a rainy night, or come to think of it, pretty much anytime. The actors are great, and the mood is very intense. Whitman was early in his career, McDowell does his usual stellar work, and Lauren Bacall gives one of her best performances as someone who belongs in the asylum, not running it. This is a great old flick that deserves a lot more recognition that it gets. If you watch it, and like it, tell others about it so the word can be spread. This deserves to be released on DVD if it hasn't already, and should be mentioned with the other great Hollywood thrillers.
