Repertory Series ArchiveHalloween 2014The Master of Schlock: A Centennial Tribute to William Castle

Strait-Jacket

Buy Tickets

(1964) dir William Castle w/Joan Crawford, Diane Baker, Leif Erickson [93 min; 35mm]
Though Castle was advised to abandon his often costly stunts, STRAIT-JACKET has its stunt built right into the film – it stars Joan Crawford! In STRAIT-JACKET, Crawford plays Lucy, a woman recently released from a 20 year stretch in the loony bin after murdering her husband and his mistress with an axe. Reunited with her daughter, it appears that Lucy may be returning to her crazy ways when corpses start piling up around them, but is she really to blame?
