Directed by Charles Vidor
The female of the species is more deadly than the male! In the gothic chiller Double Door from director Charles Vidor (Gilda, A Farewell to Arms), Mary Morris reprises her acclaimed Broadway role as one of the most dastardly villains of all time, Victoria Van Brett. In a spooky New York City mansion, the Van Brett matriarch rules her clan with an iron hand. The sinister spinster schemes to ruin any chance her siblings might have for happiness. Evil lurks around every corner of this old dark house, and especially in a secret room behind a certain double door! Evelyn Venable (Death Takes a Holiday), Kent Taylor (I’m No Angel), Sir Guy Standing (The Eagle and the Hawk) and Anne Revere (National Velvet) round out the cast of this Pre-Code classic that features the splendid Morris in the role of a lifetime as “The Female Frankenstein of Fifth Avenue”!
