Undercurrent

Directed by Vincente Minnelli • 1946 • United States
Starring Katharine Hepburn, Robert Taylor, Robert Mitchum

Following the then-current vogue for menaced-bride thrillers (REBECCA, GASLIGHT), UNDERCURRENT casts the typically strong-willed Katharine Hepburn intriguingly against type as a wide-eyed newlywed who, suspecting that her wealthy husband (Robert Taylor) may be harboring psychotic impulses, finds refuge in the arms of his sensitive half-brother (Robert Mitchum, also departing from his usual screen image). Director Vincente Minnelli’s typically intricate mise-en-scène glimmers darkly in the shadows of legendary cameraman Karl Freund’s striking cinematography.
