The Desperate Hours (William Wyler, 1955) : 48 Screenshots

For the first half of this movie I wasn't overly impressed. The female characters were particularly bland in that mid-50's 'female paragon of virtue' way, and after establishing the basic home-invasion-by-escaped-convicts set-up the film didn't seem to do much with it. But in the second half things got a lot more interesting, there were some surprising plot developments, and the conflict between Humphrey Bogart and Fredric March got really juicy. By the end I was on the edge of my seat. Recommended. Left-click once on any image to enlarge.
