Huckleberry Finn, a rambuctious boy adventurer chafing under the bonds of civilization, escapes his humdrum world and his selfish, plotting father by sailing a raft down the Mississippi ... See full summary »
In London, the pregnant wife of an industrialist falls down the stairs, loses her sight and has no recollection of the events but suspects that a mentally traumatic experience prior to the fall caused her accident.
Solid suspenser with excellent performances by a superb all-star cast.
Actor Darren McGavin made a stunning directorial debut with this suspenseful chiller about a series of gruesome murders in a small New England fishing village that end up having a bizarre connection to an adopted teen(Ron Howard) who is searching for his biological parents. The marvellous cast includes Cloris Leachman(as Howard's mother), Patricia Neal(as Howard's aunt), Bobby Darin, and Simon Oakland. The most memorable performance is given by Tessa Dahl, who not only plays Neal's daughter in the film, but is, in fact, her daughter in real life. Released to theatres as HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY, LOVE GEORGE, the film was retitled RUN, STRANGER, RUN for home video release.
