The masterful 1952 film noir drama Sudden Fear makes its Blu-ray debut from Cohen Media!

suddenfear1_optThe legendary Joan Crawford plays a successful playwright who marries a less than stellar actor (Jack Palance, Chato’s Land) with a troubling secret. She soon discovers that he not only married her for her money but that he plans to murder her with the help of his scheming lover (Gloria Grahame, In a Lonely Place). But the pair is dealing with a seasoned playwright, so they’d better make sure their plan is well-plotted…

Directed by David Miller, the movie was nominated for four Academy Awards, including Best Actress (Crawford), Best Supporting Actor (Palance) and Best Black & White Cinematography (Charles Lang, The Man from Laramie). And the memorable score is the work of the great Elmer Bernstein.

Out of print for some time, DVD editions are still available–for a pretty penny!–through second-party sellers on Amazon.
