  • Way ahead of its time

    So shocking to make the hair at the nape of your neck stand on end. Performances so good that you really hated all of them including the "Lady", a self professed monster. Way ahead of its time and no surprise that it got the reviews that it did. The violence seems common place in this day and age. A totally perceptive and complete mirror of human kind at its worst.

    Joan Crawford was announced for this movie but somehow left the movie and Olivia De Havilland took on the role (years later Olivia would also replace Joan in Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte). Olivia'sgreat talent is apparent in this film of a woman caught in an elevator in her mansion as she witnesses horrors. James Caan in one of his first movies is fine and Ann Sothern is outstanding in a a cameo.

    Tense but a bit melodramatic, especially in regards to Olivia De Havilland's performance, but it's still a good film. Professionally done and very suspenseful.

  • Cool,Crazy & Campy B-Movie

    The first time I saw "Lady In A Cage" with Olivia De Havilland was in the early 70's on a local TV station which played old movies late at night and on weekends. I have seen it probably about 10 times, and if it were played straight could have been a decent and very scary thriller. Instead, "Lady In A Cage" is pure schmaltz, a badly-acted affair about a disabled woman trapped in her private elevator while various juvenile delinquents, thieves and a totally whacked-out over-the-top religious fanatic terrorize her, trash her house and steal her belongings. When she rings the emergency bell no one comes to her house except for the above mentioned bad guys. Why? Because no one can hear it because of the traffic noise, or because no one gives a damn? But it's worth it to sit through the whole mess for the finale, when she gouges out James Caan's eyes and he stumbles with his hands over his face into traffic and ends up with his head squashed like a melon under the wheel of a car. She finally gets help, but it's probably in the local mental hospital after what she's been through. Miss De Havilland made so many great films, and this certainly isn't one of them. Why she did it I'll never know. But it's cool, crazy, campy and I love it! Please show "Lady In A Cage" soon on TCM, if not as part of your regular lineup then on TCM Underground.
