Caught movie scene

Barbara Bel Geddes and James Mason are Caught.

The 1949 film noir drama Caught directed by the great Max Ophuls (Lola Montes, The Earrings of Madame D…)  makes its U.S. DVD and Blu-ray debut courtesy of Olive Films.

Caught is a tale of Leonora (Barbara Bel Geddes, Vertigo), an aspiring carhop who meets and marries a mysterious millionaire, Smith Ohlrig (Robert Ryan, God’s Little Acre). Soon after the wedding, Laura realizes she’s trapped in a loveless marriage with a ruthless workaholic husband who torments her with twisted mind games. Unable to obtain a divorce from Smith, she moves out of the mansion and goes to work for a dedicated doctor, Larry Quinada (James Mason, Bigger Than Life). The two quickly fall in love but the romance comes to an abrupt halt when Leonora learns that she is pregnant with Ohlrig’s child…

Adapted for the screen by Arthur Laurents (West Side Story), Caught features the atmospheric cinematography of Lee Garmes (Duel In The Sun) and stylish art direction by Frank Paul Sylos (Suddenly).
