Cause for Alarm! 02/27/24


It’s a micro-scaled domestic noir: Loretta Young’s frantic housewife is tormented by a deranged husband, an invalid gone paranoid and determined to frame her for murder. Tay Garnett directs to spotlight Young’s increasing distress, with Barry Sullivan providing the psychotic menace. As a ‘woman alone’ picture it’s not bad — in Young’s frenzied state, even the neighborhood mailman seems to be against her. All she wanted was babies and a little garden! On Blu-ray from ClassicFlix.
