The Desperate Hours

Film

Film noir

 

Time Out says

From a Broadway play, with Bogart giving his penultimate performance as the desperate fugitive, a role played on stage by Paul Newman. A trio of convicts on the run terrorise an average American suburban family headed by March. One of a number of '50s films which revealed the paranoia lurking under the facade of the American dream, this time the respectability and security of the family being disrupted with a vengeance. Bogart clearly enjoys himself as a man with no redeeming features, and he's well supported by the other two (Martin, Middleton). Wyler directs efficiently, if somewhat mechanically.
