Suzanne Pleshette is great in this 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).

John O'Hara's 1949 first "long" bestselling novel (his other works were fairly short), is set at the turn of the century that not only tells the story of Penn. socialite/nymphomaniac Grace Caldwell Tate, but attempts to be another great American novel. This bogged the work down considerably when O'Hara strayed from his fascinating story of his heroine.

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.

Almost too emotionally wrenching. Suzanne struggles in an aspic of cathartic 'agit-prop' French cinema, the moralists of the American novel at apogee, the rampant flowering of American advertising, and the birth of psychiatry. Sex has seldom been uglier. Suzanne acts against her will- under her own compulsion, a force that engulfs the well-intentioned, rational milieu. Proceed with caution.

Suzanne Pleshette is great in this role. This is one of those movies you watch as an undergraduate late at night when there is nothing to see on television.

A RAGE FOR SAUSAGE is a one hour and 41 minute black and white movie about a young woman with a rage for sausage. Suzanne Pleshette (born 1937) plays a woman who is about 20 years old, but at the time the movie was released, the actress was 28 years old. The actors also include Bradford Dillman (born 1930) and Ben Gazzara (born 1930). Ms. Pleshette plays a concupiscent character, and most of the movie concerns hanky panky. Another movie from the same era, NO DOWN PAYMENT, which is also in glorious black and white, concerns the same subject matter. Both movies have an excellent script, both movies have a heavy moralistic tone, both movies have marvelous cinematography, and both movies are worthy of repeated viewings.

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).
