Sudden Fear

1952 Rated NR 1hr 50m

In this Oscar-nominated noir thriller, successful playwright Myra Hudson (Joan Crawford) puts her mystery-writing skills to good use when she suspects that her husband (Jack Palance) and his mistress (Gloria Grahame) are plotting to kill her when they discover the contents of her will. The role offered Crawford a brief comeback during the 1950s as well as a third (and final) Oscar nod. Palance was also nominated, for Best Supporting Actor.
