Synopsis


Cape Fear
After an eight-year prison term for rape and assault, Max Cady (Robert Mitchum) is set free. Immediately making a beeline to Sam Bowden (Gregory Peck), the former prosecutor responsible for Cady's conviction, Cady laconically informs Sam that he intends to "pay back" the attorney for his years behind bars. Conducting a meticulous campaign of terror, Cady is careful to stay within the law. Sam, realizing that Cady intends to wreak vengeance by raping the attorney's wife (Polly Bergen) and daughter (Lori Martin), tries to put the ex-criminal behind bars, but has no grounds to do so. Chief Dutton (Martin Balsam) tries to help Sam with a few strong-arm tactics, but succeeds only in having the courts take Cady's side in the matter. Things come to a head when Sam moves his family to the "safety" of a remote houseboat on Cape Fear river. Cady shows up unannounced and is about to ravage Bowden's wife and daughter and when Sam turns the tables. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    Classic Film, Far above average Blu-Ray

    Original 1960's version of Cape Fear is far superior to the 90's remake. Filmed in black and white, it looks FANTASTIC on blu-ray. Starring Gregory Peck and Robert Mitchum as the villain. Film is A+, picture quality is a solid A, the only thing lacking on the blu-ray are extra features. It just has a couple of old extras in Standard Definition, and even the TRAILER is in 480i. So clearly all of this was just ported over from an old DVD. However the picture quality of the film itself if marvelous, and well worth it - particularly considering this title is frequently sub $10.

    I love the old school feel of the old movies being in black & white. It gives it the perfect background and feel for the movie. This is better than the remake.

    A good late-period noir

    The main reason to see this film is Robert Mitchum. He turns in one of his finest performances. The blu-ray transfer is very good, too. Recommended.

    In many ways this is a superior film to the popular Scorsese/DeNiro remake and for the right price I was glad to add it to my collection.
