Few people are aware that the central character in Caught, Smith Ohlrig, was actually a parody of tycoon Howard Hughes. Directed by German ex-patriate Max Ophuls and produced at MGM, the film was made after Hughes reportedly affronted Ophuls by referring to him as "the oaf" when the latter worked at RKO under Hughes' erratic reign. After Ophuls left RKO for MGM, he orchestrated the film's creation as a sublime revenge against Hughes. Starring Robert Ryan, James Mason and Barbara Bel Geddes, Caught was an elegant entry that showcased Ryan's tremendous power as an actor. He seemed to intuitively recognize how to portray Ohlrig (Hughes), demonically effective as the cruel, self-centered magnate who marries ingenue Bel Geddes to spite his psychiatrist. As in many of his films, Ryan's performance is the biggest reason to see it, and as usual, one keeps hoping for more scenes in which he appears. Though Mason and Bel Geddes occupy more space in the film, it is clearly a "Ryan" film. Caught engages the audience most during the scenes involving Ryan and Bel Geddes, and was considered by many to be the best of Ophuls' American-made films. As a film noir, it contains all of the necessary elements of alienation and deception, and the opening scenes between Ryan and Bel Geddes, Ryan and his psychiatrist, Ryan and James Mason, and Ryan and his lackey (Curt Bois) are reason enough to see the film. The story itself is less effective than the sum of its parts, and should be seen by any movie buff interested in film noir.

Leonora (Barbara Bel Geddes) marries a rich man (Robert Ryan) and gets wealth but not happiness. To get away from her pointless life and the husband, who regards her as an employee, rather than a wife, she moves away and gets a job as a secretary for a doctor (James Mason).
This movie is not only well-written, well directed and well acted. It also has great cinematography and a good Noir atmosphere. The story isn't unique, but the combination of all these things result in a very good movie. Film Noir is one of my favorite genres and no Noir fan should miss this movie. The movie, and especially the Robert Ryan character (based on Howard Hughes) made me think of Citizen Kane. Noir fans can raise my rating a half star.

"Caught" is solid though slightly offbeat film noir. It certainly drives home the notion that money will not solve all your problems! As C unfolds, a very young Barbara Bel Geddes dreams of marrying a rich guy. That's the way to happiness! Barbara gets her wish and soon is in a loveless marriage to tycoon Robert Ryan. She has made her deal with the devil. Finally, she leaves him and takes a job as a receptionist for an idealistic Doctor, James Mason. She falls quickly in love but can't marry. There is a slight hurdle- Bel Geddes is pregnant by Ryan! This reviewer won't reveal the resolution- the curious will have to see C for themselves. The view here is that the fadeout is rather abrupt and even bizarre. Noir fans can still enjoy C for the following reasons: 1) The acting is strong, especially the male leads. Mason and Ryan almost always turn in stalwart performances. C is no exception. (Try to catch Ryan in "Executive Action" and Mason in "5 Fingers". The former concerns the JFK plot; the latter is a WW2 spy thriller. Both are undershown and underappreciated.) 2) The noir background of dark exterior, dimly lit rooms, murky lighting and general gloom is well done. 3) The supporting cast is excellent especially Frank Ferguson as Mason's partner and Curt Bois as Ryan's cloying flunky. Art Smith is wonderful as Ryan's patient but overwhelmed shrink. C is worth more than the sum of its parts. This is not a choice for those watching their very first noir movie. Old hands at the genre should be quite satisfied. For veterans, the 4 star rating is justified.

Last night, March 21, 2011, I watched this movie for the first time on Turner Classic Movies. I was never a big fan of Barbara Bel Geddes...but she was superb in this! Folks who love the work of Robert Ryan should put this one at the top of their "must see" list. Of course James Mason is wonderful in anything he touches. The one thing that classic movie buffs should look for is the "moving camera" effect/work of director, Max Ophuls. The night club scene in this film when James and Barbara dance around and through a big noisy crowd of folks is truly a joy to see. They talk and act like regular people and the best part is the scene feels real...not contrived as so many other films do. You all might want to look at the history of the actors' group, Enterprise, that made this film. After WWII a lot of wonderful actors formed film companies and tried to do their own work outside the giant movie companies like MGM. Many wonderful films were made before these independents went broke. This film is a good example of what great and good talent can do outside the control of the big moguls. I can only find this film in VHS form. But this is OK for this old gal...I was using VHS a long time before DVD. This is a good price and I look forward to many private viewings.

.......I might overrate this film because of her. However, there are many who are m ore impartial in this matter and they think highly of this film.

Perhaps that is because:
1 - There are three classy actors in lead roles: Bel Geddes, James Mason and the always-evil (it seems) Robert Ryan; 2 - some really nice film-noir cinematography with a lot of dark atmospheric scenes but faces lit up so can see them clearly; 3 - a feeling of impending violence and tension in the scenes involving Ryan which keep you on the edge of your seat wondering what may happen; 4 - Mason's contrasting and soft personality, and 5 - Bel Geddes' soft voice and winsome character which makes the viewer (not just me) care about her.

The aforementioned tension is probably why this movie is labeled a film noir but it really falls into more of the melodrama mode. Normally, that doesn't do it for me, but not in this film.

***SPOILER ALERT***The only part that turned me off was the ending in which the principal "good guys" seemed really happy and delighted that the baby had died! Wow, does that sound like the selfish attitudes of the modern-day world. A pathetic way to end a good film. Despicable ending or not, I'd sure like to see this on DVD. What's the holdup?
