A Real good one for Thrillers
Sam Bowden (Gregory Peck) is a happily married lawyer with a teenage daughter, a quiet life and little worries to care for until released convict Max Cady (Robert Mitchum) moves near by seeking for revenge against him. Cady blames Bowden for his 8 years imprisonment because the lawyer failed to get him an innocent verdict in Court for a serious crime he was accused of (and he had committed). The man starts by stalking Bowden and his family while he waits for the appropriate moment to make his move. In the meantime, Cady does not hide his intentions and Bowden knows perfectly well they are in big trouble.

The film is tense all along and interest doesn’t fall at any moment. There is a correct direction by J. Lee Thompson, a slightly more than average director who probably did here one of his best jobs (the other one “The Guns of Navarone” (1962) a very entertaining World War II adventure). Black and white shooting was a good idea and helps to create some sort of sordid and dark atmosphere when required as well as the musical score.

Casting is very good too. Gregory Peck is correct in one of his many common good guy roles. Polly Bergen is believable as the frightened wife and there is also good acting by Martin Balsam (as Bowden’s chief of police friend) and Telly Savalas (as a private detective hired to help the family). But the major credit in this issue goes without doubt to Robert Michum’s performance as the dangerous avenger. He looks calm and quiet -with few exceptions- all the way to the final climax sequences but you know perfectly the man is real mean and deadly. This surely was one of Mitchum’s best appearances in his long film carrier.

The 1991 Cape Fear version with Robert de Niro -although a watchable movie- is not as good and thrilling as this one where evil doesn’t appear clearly till the end but menace is always there.

A very good thriller indeed!

This is what film noir is supposed to be
The Original Cape Fear, where to start with this classic noir film? First of all let me preface this review by stating , if you came here looking for a compare and contrast job between this and the (1991) Cape Fear with Nick Nolte and Robert De Niro, you have come to the wrong place. Now that I have that off my chest let us begin.

The plot consists of a southern lawyer Sam Bowden (Peck) being visited by a felon he helped put away eight years ago, Max Cady (Mitchum). Following the initial reintroduction, Cady begins to slowly and deliberately annoy and harass Bowden and his family. As the film progresses this harassment turns more and more dangerous as Cady first targets the family dog and then takes an interest in Bowden’s young teenage Daughter Nancy (Lori Martin). We see a man of the law Bowden confronted with the limitations of that law despite his friendship with the police department.

This film is visually stunning shot in classic black and white with a haunting tension filled score that scares the bejesus out of you. You feel the growing desperation of Bowden as Cady skates at the edge of the law and forces Bowden to the other side of the law. Just how far is Bowden willing to compromise his principles to protect his family. You can’t really help but put yourself in the same situation while watching the film and wondering what you would do.

The whole cast of this film is fabulous. Peck’s portrayal of Bowden as the anit-Atticus Finch is great but not as great as Mitchum who steals the movie as the increasingly creepy and lecherous Max Cady. His portrayal is even more amazing when you consider what sensors would allow to be seen when this film was made. Mitchum imparts more meaning out of a leer and tip of his hat than many modern films can with crazy CGI effects. The supporting cast is rock solid as well, Martin Balsam is great as the Police Chief Mark Dutton, and Telly Savalas is outstanding as Private investigator Charles Sievers even if he does not have a lollypop.

The level of fear and uneasy sexual tension in this film will have you on the edge of the couch. I highly recommend seeing this film if you haven’t in the past or revisiting it as it never gets stale. This is what great film noir is all about.
