  • When people farmed in the Way-Back-Beyond...

    It's a wonderfully suspenseful movie and the photography is stunning. But it was the mythic, deep-in-the-hills American landscape that once was...that's what captivated me from the start. (To think that zillions of farmers made a healthy living before agribusiness took over for an unhealthy few.) In The Red House, we see rolling hills, gorgeous old handmade buildings, lush fields and a clean lake. Stunning. This was Lon McCallister's shining hour; he was usually listed as 'bellhop' or 'stock boy' in movies. He and Allene Roberts were splendid and the b&w close-ups of the two are really wonderful. Like art. EGR is perfect, as usual, as is Judith Anderson. Julie London and spoooooky Rory Calhoun were ideal in their roles; nobody has ever looked like him-- EVAH! One of a kind. I won't give away any plot, just sayin' "watch this!" and watch it in a dark room ;)

    Allene Roberts is proof that a girl does not have to be glamorous to be beautiful, she consistently gave involved and sensitive performances, much like Cathy O'Donnell.

  • Interesting unknown film.

    Ahead of it's time in certain ways. In the opening scene on the school bus Tibby tells her boyfriend that they'll meet at the lake and change into there swimwear there. Immediately the image of the shapely Tibby wet and naked pops into our minds. Tibby was a "bad girl" at a time when bad girls were not portrayed in films. She was proud of her bold behavior and dress.The low-budget atmospheric nature of the film adds to it's appeal. The film is apparently in the public domain as numerous DVD releases of it exist, all of mediocre quality but watchable.

    Like Elaine Bossman, I first saw this film when I was ten years old and it became (along with Our Town) my favorite movie(s). While knowledge of the ending and the passage of 55 years has dulled my enthusiasm for the movie BUT, not much! It's still a wonderful film, well worth the investment of the time it takes to see it. Don't read the synopsis, it spoils the ending if you do.

  • A must see!

    I purchased this movie because I'm a fan of E.G.R. & I really enjoyed it. Mr. Robinson was fantastic in this picture & so were the others but his acting gave me goose pimples-he was so creepy! And what a ending!

    I first saw this film on the late show when I was just about ten years old, and I never forgot it. Although I was somewhat frightened, I couldn't help being drawn right into it. Now, some thirty years later, having purchased my own copy, I see that the intense mystery and suspense it portrays was held together by the brilliant acting of Edward G. Robinson and Judith Anderson. Although just a bit dated now, I believe that it is well worth viewing and I am very glad that it is now a part of my own film library.
