Product Description

Oscar-nominated Robert Mitchum and Faith Domergue star in this hard-edged 1950 Film Noir thriller with a powerful sting in the tail. Dr Jeff Cameron (Robert Mitchum) breaks the golden rule when he falls in love with his patient, the beautiful heiress Margot Lannington (Faith Domergue). After a whirlwind romance, he goes to confront her father who seems determined to separate them. Five minutes later he receives the biggest shock of his life and Edward Lannington (Claude Rains) lies dead... Now Jeff and Margot are on the run for murder, with 500 miles of bad road between them and the Mexican border. It is a road with many sudden twists and chilling revelations - as Jeff begins to realise that Margot has more secrets she s keeping from him... Scripted by Hitchcock favourite Charles Bennett and guaranteed to keep audiences guessing until the very last minute, Where Danger Lives has been digitally restored and remastered and is available to own on UK DVD for the very first time.

With screen play by one of Alfred Hitchcock's favourite screenwriters, you know this is going to be good, with Robert Mitchum up front, its almost a cast iron deal.

You've read the blurb above regarding the story on here so i won't go through that again, but what happens is that the real kickoff comes very early in the story, you think that the screenwriter's blown his load and once this major occurrence happens, that the rest of the film might be padding?

Wrong.

The hiatus is just what kicks off the rest of gthe film, as Claude Rains seems to say, 'Be careful what yoiu wish for,' and like a Rescue Pet, poor old Bob Mitchum winds up with a somewhat pitiful lady who turns out to be .... well, I won't spoil it but he has his work cut out staying conscious and alive.

As their Journey goes on, Mitchum and lady friend run out of resources, luck and it seems sanity. As they head for the Mexican border, that one last fence in the race, that presents itself as a new problem.

A tightly written piece of work and Bob Mitchum plays the mr Nice Guy who finds himself sucked in to something he could not have envisaged!

Classic film noir, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 15 Oct. 2012
Format: DVD
Made largely to showcase Howard Hughes' latest inamoratas Faith Domergue, Where Danger Lives starts off a little slow and more than somewhat unintentionally amusing, laying on nice young doctor Robert Mitchum's nice guy credentials with a trowel (he even tells a bedtime story about Elmer the Elephant to a little girl in an iron lung). Things don't immediately improve once he meets Domergue's suicidal femme fatale, but once Claude Rains turns up for his one scene as her `father,' it starts getting better and better and heads straight for near-classic status as they find themselves on the run, Mitch nursing a surprisingly medically accurate serious concussion ("I may talk rationally but my decisions may not make much sense.") and Domergue manifesting some pretty unpleasant symptoms of her own ("Nobody pities me!"). Of course, we know he must be having problems even before he takes that bump on the head since no-one in possession of a full set of marbles would pass over nurse Maureen O'Sullivan for Faith Domergue even if she doesn't take off her surgical mask to answer the phone - O'Sullivan may have been the director's wife but she's barely seen without it. As their bolt for the border goes increasingly badly, the eternally underrated John Farrow mirrors his condition with a more surreal set of characters and situations - not least a truly bizarre plot development during `Whiskers Week.' The great Nicolas Musuraca does his usual wonders with the black and white cinematography and Farrow throws in one of the longest of his uninterrupted single takes, a key seven-minute hotel room scene that's so fluid and cinematic despite consisting of only two people in a small, dingy room that you don't even notice there are no cuts.Read more ›

By Spike Owen TOP 500 REVIEWER on 3 Jun. 2014
Format: DVD
Where Danger Lives is directed by John Farrow and written by Charles Bennett. It stars Robert Mitchum, Faith Domergue, Claude Rains and Maureen O'Sullivan. Music is by Roy Webb and cinematography by Nicholas Musuraca.

Upon tending to attempted suicide victim Margo Lannington (Domergue), Dr. Jeff Cameron (Mitchum) falls in love with her and quickly finds his life spiralling out of control.

Classic noir fable here, which begs the question on why is it not better known? More so when you consider it stars noir icon and legend Robert Mitchum? OK! Big Mitch never once convinces as a life saving doctor, but for a sad sap heavy eyed portrayal who you gonna call? Why Mitch of course. Thus the pic actually gets away with this odd bit of character casting, as it does the average performance from the otherwise lovely Domergue. Domergue was being pushed forward as Howard Hughes' latest siren of the screen, she would never attain great status, but she would grace many a "B" picture and become a cult fan favourite.

Dr. Cameron has it all, a great job and a pretty nurse (O'Sullivan) who loves him very much, but one peer into the puppy dog eyes of Margo Lannington and he's in hook, line and sinker. Film essentially turns into a lovers on the lam story as the two lovers head for the border after leaving the scene of a crime. As the journey progresses and gets ever more perilous, Margo begins to show erratic behaviour, while Jeff is struggling badly with a concussion that grows evermore acute. They meet an assortment of odd or unsavoury characters, a low life car dealer, weasel pawn broker, shyster club owner, the latter of which is currently airing a rather bizarre cabaret show.
