Stepford Wives

1975

Bryan Forbes
Director

Delicious rendering of Ira Levin's satirical urban horror. Long a source of wrangling between director Bryan Forbes and screenwriter William Goldman. Dated and feels like a TV movie, Nanette Newman is miscast but not for the reasons Goldman says. Silly, but at least two bits haunt - and I'm not talking about the delectable Ms. Ross in a sheer nightie. Perennial baddie Patrick O'Neal has never been more smoothly evil and Paula Prentiss is a delight too.
