Goofs

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.

A Real Find
26 September 2005 | by (NY, NY) – See all my reviews

Stuart Whitman is seen in a classical acting role and recruited to play a very rough part: He is to be paid for feigning insanity and being committed to psychiatric hospital. The goal is to learn more about a character played by Roddy McDowell, who is confined there.

Whitman is excellent, as is McDowell. The latter develops a bit of an unstated crush on the former. So does Carol Lynley, who has a very small role for the major billing she gets.

The plot revolves around psychiatrist and researcher Lauren Bacall. This character could give Dr. Caligari a run for his money.

It's not hough art but i's exciting and suspenseful. And the acting is excellent all around.
