The furst time I saw the flick, I had to shut iot off way before the ending.
Yep.
Scary stuff.
Turner Classic Movies and Universal Studios Home Entertainment proudly present the first North American DVD release of Midnight Lace (1960), a classic thriller starring Doris Day.
Day was in her second year of a remarkable seven year run as the biggest female box office draw in Hollywood when this film was released. Launched to superstardom after being paired with Rock Hudson in the racy romantic comedy Pillow Talk (1959), this film allowed her to play against type in a Hitchcock-styled thriller. Day plays Kit Preston, elegant newlywed wife of British Financier Anthony Preston (Rex Harrison).
Shortly after moving to one of London’s toniest neighborhoods, she is threatened by an unknown party. The tension mounts as the menacing phone calls continue and Anthony shows little concern, until Kit begins to doubt her own sanity and the motives of everyone around her. A nail-biting thriller with a top-notch supporting cast that includes Myrna Loy, John Gavin and Roddy McDowall.Newlywed American heiress Kit Preston is living with her financier husband Tony on Grosvenor Square in London.
We ain't telling much. Returning home in a dense fog, Kit is startled by an eerie, electronic-like voice threatening to kill her within the month. The voice calls her by name and torments her as she runs to escape. Hubby Tony tries to convince her she has been the victim of a practical joker and suggests they travel to Venice for the honeymoon they never had.
And then . . .
