Wealthy Peter Sterling and his younger wife Christine have an existence of little excitement so when a stranger comes into their lives, she is intrigued. An affair turns into much more and they are soon plotting to rob Peter of a precious gemstone.
In an interview with Australian movie magazine 'Cinema Papers', actress Angela Punch McGregor said of this film: "I was offered the role of a model, which amazed me. It was a long time since I had made a film and I feared that if I didn't do it, I would go down the plug hole. The role was a mistake; the film was a mistake. But I didn't know that at the time. Brian Kavanagh turned out to be one of the most sensitive directors to actors that I have ever come across, but I don't think he should write his own scripts. See more »
I sought this film for quite a long time. Finally, I own a copy and have watched it twice. It was worth the wait.
Peter Sterling (the incomparable Louis Jourdan) and his wife Christine (Angela Punch McGregor) are bored with the state of their lives, particularly with one another. Christine is especially bored and longs for adventure and excitement. After all, Peter is a butterfly collector, and Christine feels like one of his pretty possessions.
Excitement comes in the form on a stranger, a nameless young man (Warwick Comber). Christine gets adventure and excitement, all right--and much more. The ending provides a twist that is brilliant and unexpected.
Brian Kavanagh wrote and directed this film, and his craft is evident. Kavanagh is a published novelist, so his ability to create intriguing, thrilling, engaging, and entertaining stories and characters is well known.
If you can locate a copy of "Double Dare," by all means grab it. You will not be disappointed.
