Storyline

Robert Altman's sadly neglected film that, along with his later "Images", fits into the unconventional psycho-thriller mold. A bizarre story with Sandy Dennis as a spinster who takes in a handsome young man (Michael Burns) who is pretending to be mute. She imprisons the boy and supplies his every need, including a prostitute (Luana Anders), whom she goes out and brings home for Burns' pleasure. Written by alfiehitchie

Trivia

Jack Nicholson was very keen on playing the role of 'the boy'. He even discussed it with 'Robert Altman' in his office. But Altman turned him down: "Jack, I think you're just too old." See more »

A word to the wise.

If you remember how Sandy Dennis charmed your socks off in "Up The Down Staircase," be forewarned, she WILL creep you out in "That Cold Day in The Park." Remember to tell yourself, that this is only a movie, and she was only an actress...and a damned good one.
