The movie has been set in the period it was made (60s) and glosses over many important aspects of the book for the reader and now viewer to understand Grace. Although the storyline of the film pretty much follows the book, Grace is lost by an underdeveloped script.
Don't blame this on Suzanne Pleshette in the title role. She not only physically fits the role but emotionally embodies Grace when the script allows her which isn't often and thus leaving some unexplained scenes). Her performance is as always, right on target. Her sexy, husky voice and smoldering good looks made her one of Hollywood's finest discoveries in the the early 60s (although she played small parts on TV and movies in the late 50s).
The gist of the story is Grace Caldwell marries Sidney Tate (Bradford Dillman) and as they wait for their new home to be built, she falls for Ben Gazzara, a builder.
O'Hara abhorred the Penn. upper class and his books cut them to shreds. He was born into this society only to have it taken away from him when his doctor/father died when he was young and left penniless. He never relinquished his resentment and his characters are power hungry, devious and some sexually perverted in his works. O'Hara utilized dialogue to convey his explicit sex scenes.Read more ›
OPENING SCENES. The opening minutes of A RAGE FOR SAUSAGE shows roadsigns identifying the intersection of U.S. 30 and Route 41, which according to Google maps is halfway between Lancaster, PA and Malvern, PA. The opening minutes show barns, silos, farms, a covered bridge, a stone bridge, a long metal girder bridge, and meandering streams. Most of the movie concerns the meandering morality of the main actors. Before I continue, I want to mention that I liked seeing Virginia Christine, who plays a minor character. I liked her because she was in a Twilight Zone episode (ESCAPE CLAUSE). She was also featured in a Folger's coffee commercial.
CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT BEGINS. Ms. Pleshette enters her house and calls for her mother. It is a wealthy person's house. At 4 minutes, 20 seconds into the movie, there is already a hint of what is to come. Pleshette is unbuttoning her blouse (this was sure to heat up the bloodstream of all men watching this movie when it first came out).Read more ›

Turgid melodrama. Trashy and contrived. Pleshette looks gorgeous, but this is strictly lowbrow stuff.Published 17 months ago by triton
