Joan Hackett and Kevin McCarthy
21 April 2012 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Beast in View" features acclaimed Broadway actress Joan Hackett as Helen Clarvoe, who hires attorney Paul Blackshear (Kevin McCarthy) to help deter the intrusive presence of Dorothy Johnson (Kathleen Nolan). Some years earlier, Dorothy's impending marriage to Helen's brother was shattered when Helen revealed Dorothy to have embezzled money from her future in laws, since blaming Helen for ruining her life. Blackshear manages to find Dorothy and speak to her, but she denies harassing Helen, while fighting off another hangover and displaying the wedding dress that she never got to wear. The climax certainly echoes one of Hitchcock's most famous films, just a few years too late. George Furth appears as a photographer whose shooting death again points the finger at the prime suspect.
