  • A definite HIT with reviewers

    Ida Lupino deserves some kind of Award for Industry in the year 1941: she made four movies that came out that year and fell in love with her co-star, Louis Heyward...who incidentally, looks alot like a relative of British actor Hugh Grant.This is a wonderful gothic thriller, with misty-moisty marshes surrounding an isolated old house. Ida Lupino plays the tightly-strung Ellen Creed very well, and when you see those black shoes and the long black skirt coming down the stairs, silently, fluidly like a deadly fog. It's great! I was astounded to read that Evelyn Keyes was the maid, Lucy.What a chameleon. This movie has much visual beauty, much as director Charles Vidor gave to 'Gilda', also in black and white. 5 stars from me.

    I fell in love with this movie the first time I saw it! One of my top 5 mysteries actually. Read where Ida Lupino said this was her favorite role. The perfect mystery in the perfect black and white. The casting was absolutely perfect for everyone of the supporting actresses and Louis Hayward was adorable all through it! Would love to see this shown more often!!

  • DVD, please, soon!

    I thoroughly enjoy this movie also. Please put it on DVD soon and more of Ida Lupino's movies.

    I was hoping to buy this movie for my aunt. She's a movie buff and it has everything that she loves-suspense, black and white and it's set in England. I was so happy to watch it and know she'll love it. Will it be released to DVD? Thanks

  • When will this be out on DVD?

    I caught this on TCM the other night. I had to turn in before it was over, and I rather stupidly didn't tape the ending. I really enjoyed this movie, and would buy it in a second if it were out on DVD. Hopefully we won't have to wait too long??

  • What a wonderful surprise!

    I was absolutely delighted to see "Ladies In Retirement" listed in our newspaper's TV schedule for tonight. I have begged for some time to have this deliciously strange suspense found and shown on TV. The cast is top rate, especially Ida Lupino, the delightfully dotty Elsa Lanchester, Edith Barrett, and the sneaky Louis Hayward. I only hope that the film will make it onto a DVD soon as it is a real collector's item. Oh great TCM, I knew we could count on you. May you live forever.
