THE COBWEB (1955) C widescreen 124m dir: Vincente Minnelli

w/Richard Widmark, Lauren Bacall, Gloria Grahame, Charles Boyer, Susan Strasberg, John Kerr, Lillian Gish

A stellar cast brings William Gibson's dramatic novel about a modern mental institution to the screen with conviction. Gish and Boyer are standouts. Screen newcomers Kerr and Strasberg (daughter of Lee) also make their marks.
