For some reason this movie always scared me as a kid. One of the first made for tv movies. I wish TCM would show it. Unger Stevens was great.
A blond who MADE an impression
She was a troubled person and was probably bi-polar. Nonetheless, if you remember a film she was in, you probably remember her. Cases in point, "Cry Terror" and "Hang'em High". I would have loved to see Hitchcock make use of her in a full length feature film. (She appeared in an episode of Alfred Hitchcock presents - "Forecast; Low Clouds and Coastal Fog")
Inger Stevens cause of death
Janet stated that Inger Stevens died of self inflicted poisoning by drinking lye. All other sources list barbituates as the cause of her death. So Janet all I have to say to you about your cause of death for Inger: It's a lye!!!
What a loss!
I remember reading that she was in love with Burt Reynolds and that might have contributed to her suicide. obviously Miss Stevens had problems but it really is our loss. She was a terrific actress.
Incorrect cause of death for Inger Stevens
Inger Stevens actually died of self-inflicted poisoning by drinking lye, not barbituates. She had been in love with Bing Crosby but as she was not Catholic he didn't marry her. Her best film was as Walter Matthau's husband in, "Guide for the Married Man".
A definate innovater , and risk taker.
- A Johnson
Inger's acceptance of the role in "The wold , The flesh ,The devil" puts her at the highest rating in regards to innovation, and risk taking. To play a role in 1958 in which a white woman is in love with a black man ,must have put her in quite a disposission in pre civil rights america, and I am sure she was well aware of the controversy before accepting the role.
Movies no included in her filmography.

1970 Run Simon Run with Burt Reynolds. Original title of this movie was Savage Run. In 1969 0r 1970 she made The Mask Of Sheba. I do not remember the other actors only her performance.
Outstanding support in "Hang 'Em High"
Inger's performance as Rachel in "Hang 'Em High" is pivotal to all the other performances but especially that of Clint Eastwood. The scene in which she reveals to Clint her inability to respond to him is remarkable for its restraint and pathos. She was also adept at comedy, as she proved in 101 episodes of "The Farmer's Daughter" on TV.
Vastly Underated Actress
- Ralph Widmann
Her Statements of terror and desperation in "Man on Fire" and "Cry Terror" are without equal
