Uncomfortable to watch, but watch you will
This film should remind people, particularly women, that people who are invited into your home may be mentally disturbed and dangerous. This film, based on a play get two great performances out of Lupino and Ryan, who scares the hell out of the audience. Ryan plays his character with reality, while Tony Perkins, in the much more famous Hitchcock "Psycho" does not match the intensity of Ryan. And in Psycho, the murder victim is a criminal, while in Beware.. Lupino is the victim of fear in her own house. Most females can identify with Lupino's character. How many women rob their boss and run off to see their paramour? Some might say Janet Leigh got her judgement without a jury.
The hair on the back of my neck is still standing up! Excellent performances by both Ida Lupino and Robert Ryan...the setting is beautiful...intense and thought provoking...do I hire a handyman this Fall?
beware my lovely
good movie,Ida at her best
Mr. Maltin & Others Are "Dead" Wrong!!

Are you kidding me 2.5 stars!!!!! I could go through his book and find plenty of schlock he gave the same or even more stars. Robert Ryan was much more than "competent" (as the NY Times Reviewer put it). He embodied the character!! In the scene where he is seated and his mind is jolted from one "personality" to another the twitch he uses to signify this change could be registered on the Richter scale. Ms. Lupino was the archtype strong woman - using every trick in her book to try and get out alive. Yes, it's a thriller - HELLO! - but these are not cardboard characterizations. The cinematography is excellent. There are some beautiful framing of shots, etc. Truly unappreciated!
Beware, My Lovely (1952)
Solid acting by the leads and a well done screenplay, well photographed. Robert Ryan gives a fine and tense performance, Isa Lupino excels. Good direction, effective score.
