The feature-film debut from acclaimed writer-director Joseph L. Mankiewicz (All About Eve, A Letter to Three Wives), Dragonwyck is a sumptuous tale starring Gene Tierney (Laura, Leave Her to Heaven), horror-maestro Vincent Price (House of Usher, Edward Scissorhands) and Walter Huston (The Treasure of Sierra Madre).
Miranda Wells (Tierney) is an ambitious young woman invited by her cousin Nicholas Van Ryn (Price) to stay at Dragonwyck castle. After her arrival, Van Ryn's wife suddenly dies and Miranda finds herself the new object of her cousin's affections. Charming and mysterious, Van Ryn marries the newcomer but soon the new bride learns that her husband is slowly descending into a strange madness.
With luscious costumes and eerie black and white photography, Dragonwyck is a sinister treat, ripe for rediscovery.
