Director William Wyler's suspense classic marks the only time cinema giants Humphrey Bogart and Fredric March worked together. And the result is everything you'd expect: taut, terrifying and terrific.
Bogart plays an escaped con who has nothing to lose. March is a suburban Everyman who has everything to lose - his family is held hostage by Bogart. As 'The Desperate Hours' tick by, the two men square off in a battle of wills and cunning that tightens into an unforgettable, fear-drenched finale.
