US TV movie but a pretty tough one
4 April 2014 | by (Greenwich - London) – See all my reviews

US TV movie but a pretty tough one from Paul Wedkos, who worked almost exclusively in such movies though he did make the interesting but much maligned, The Mephisto Waltz ten years before this. Leading lady, or lady who is lead on a lead for most of the movie, is Blanche Baker, who I was not aware of but who does very well here and is still working today. Big bad boy here is played very effectively by Cliff De Young and he is most convincing. Unfortunately this is very predictable at first and soon becomes annoying as the innocent couple go out of their way to prepare for disaster. Things change however, and we subsequently get, the best presentation of the 'Stockholm Syndrome' outside of the Patty Hearst. Even so the lighting is uninspired, the camera work dull and the dialogue struggling to stay this side of believable. We could have just done with a couple of sharp shocks or spine tingling moments to enliven this well meaning attempt to do something a little different.
