Smith Ohlrig: ”Why the devil do you think I sent you up there, you dirty little parasite? Get her down here! “
Franzi Kartos: “I think I prefer to be a headwaiter again, Mr. Ohlrig. “
Franzi Kartos: ”You know, you’re a big man, but not big enough to destroy that girl. Goodbye.”
DIRECTOR: MAX OPHÜLS
Robert Ryan gives a towering performance as psychotic billionaire Smith Ohlrig, who marries impressionable young Leonora Eames (Barbara Bel Geddes) and gives her everything she ever wanted—except for affection. Leaving her life of luxury behind, Leonora soon falls for an altruistic doctor (James Mason). But Ohlrig, not one to be rebuffed, devises a scheme to permanently lock the bonds of matrimony. Superbly directed by Max Ophüls, CAUGHT also boasts cinematography by the great Lee Garmes.
Playing at the Whitsell Auditorium at 7 p.m. September 28th.
