That Woman Drove Me Crazy
9 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an interesting Studio One production from 1949. It involves a young woman with a history. Lurking in it is a character played by Yul Brynner, though he plays a much older man. I think of his buff portrayal of Pharoah in The Ten Commandments. This young woman is married to a psychiatrist and the Brynner character is a highly respected doctor himself. There is a connection back to the war and the death of the mother. This is about as Freudian as you can get. It is a bit chilling and interesting. As usual, in a male dominated world, a woman who tries to prove her danger is seen as silly and scatterbrained. The husband tries to analyze her at every turn. The past connection involves the piano, a recital, white flowers and a lot of angst. It's just really melodramatic.
