Synopsis:
The feature-film debut from acclaimed writer-director Joseph L. Mankiewicz, 'Dragonwyck' is a sumptuous tale starring Gene Tierney, horror-maestro Vincent Price and Walter Huston. 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.
