4.0 out of 5 stars ophuls quality 9 Jun 2009
No pun intended, quite the reverse. Ophuls was one of the best, and he stamped quality on most everything he did in cinema. This film tells the not-unusual story of a young woman caught in a disastrous marriage. Forget everything you have seen in many other cinematic passes at the subject-matter, and come to this drama ready to be intrigued and entertained. You won't be disappointed. Robert Ryan is powerful and menacing in the interesting psychological (much in the fashion of contemporary and later Hitchcock films) portrait of a man who must be obeyed. Barbara Bel Geddes is also excellent - another of Ophuls' self-absorbed victim-heroines. And James Mason provides the perfect foil for them both in a convincing character study of a doctor with a social conscience but no sociability. The transfer to DVD is excellent, and it comes with useful extra material (an intelligent discussion of the film, providing insights into Ophuls' methods and relating this production to some of his other work). Well worth having in the home video library.

4.0 out of 5 stars Millionaires wife seeks the poor life! 21 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This movie stars the great James Mason, Robert Ryan and Barbara Bel Geddes. Barbara plays the new wife of a millionaire played by Robert Ryan who treats her very badly, so to get away from him she leaves her luxury surroundings to move to another low class town, she gets a job of a Doctors receptionist to Dr.Quinada played by James Mason,the obvious happens(they fall in love),only she can't stay with him as something happens that makes it out of the question! The whole cast is good especially James Mason,but I feel he should have played Robert Ryan's role of the evil millionaire rather than that of the wimpy angelic Doctor.The movie could have been a little better but is very entertaining and has it's moments!

3.0 out of 5 stars A 'Woman's Picture' - can Babs find happiness? 9 May 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Not too much of a story going on here - Barbara Bel Geddes (Leonora) gets married to Robert Ryan (Smith Ohlrig) who doesn't really want to marry her. She feels trapped and decides to break away but Ryan is a rich, manipulative bully who wants his own way.

This film does not belong in the Film Noir category as is constantly being suggested - there are too many elements missing for it to be defined in this genre, most glaringly the lack of a 'femme fatale' and the lack of any murder victim. However, Ophuls does direct in a Noirish manner, for example there is a claustrophobic feel to many scenes. His direction provides a depth to many shots and this cranks the interest of the film up a gear, as ultimately, there is not a lot of plot (another element missing that would normally define a Film Noir). This film is about power in relationships and goes down the obvious preachy road of money alone can't make you happy.

Robert Ryan is the standout in the cast and every line he delivers is top quality. His role is based on Howard Hughes, who allowed the performance to go ahead provided that the film leave out any obvious reference to Hughes's business dealings and to his appearance. Ryan gets the ridiculous name of 'Smith Ohlrig' to depict a millionaire and I'm sure that it fooled nobody in it's disguise. James Mason as 'Dr Quinada' is watchable and holds the interest as Ryan's rival in love for Barbara Bel Geddes. He gets, for me, the best line in the film when he says to Bel Geddes on recently meeting Ryan "I've met that man for 3 minutes....and he's not normal..." It's funny because it could apply to so many people that I know - not me, of course.

However, there is something not quite right in the casting of Barbara Bel Geddes.

2.0 out of 5 stars Caught [1948] 31 Mar 2010
Being one of Ophuls few American films I was hoping for a clearer print. Most of the time it was a bit off focus. The best part was the additional short describing the aspects of Ophuls' other works in comparison to Caught. Even the clips showed are far sharper than Caught's video. Also my PAL converter created annoying speed up, slow down shudders during any fast movement. This was the first film to have this effect.
A truly great film,Caught [1948] [DVD] its print was far below standard.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ophüls rules ! 4 Mar 2014
By Ténès
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If not exactly his best, this is nonetheless another superbly crafted piece of work Max Ophüls. It gets one's attention at the outset and hold it fast right to the end. James Mason is impressive in the role of good guy, and Robert Ryan is a natural in his part as the tyrannical tycoon husband. The film came out at a time when the "noir" genre was much to the fore, and it more or less fulfils that description.

4.0 out of 5 stars Marred classic 30 Dec 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Max Ophuls was one of the most influential directors of his generation. His films involved provocative themes shot in his signature chiaroscuro lighting with his signature fluid camera.Caught has a strong cast in Barbara Del Geddes ( The original Maggie in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof)' Robert Ryan as the abusive husband and his rival: James Mason. All goes well; the development is absorbing and credible. The sets are beautiful, heavily glass windows and doors and wrought iron, recalling the design of Ophuls Letter from an Unknown Women, reaching a point where a serious resolution might have occurred. Unfortunately the film at that point lapses into an absurdity, crass and careless. A great disappointment.
