I have fond memories of watching this film on TV (under the title INN OF THE FRIGHTENED PEOPLE) during the 70's with my late mother. It was a favorite of hers, thanks to the psychological, rather than physical, violence as well the surprise ending and would soon become a favorite of mine, too (for the same reasons). The TV showings dried-up during the mid-80's and, besides a short-lived AIR Video VHS release (using the title BEHIND THE CELLAR DOOR), it disappeared from view. Imagine my surprise finding this tight little thriller on DVD. The story is simple: Jim and Carol Radford (James Booth, Joan Collins) lose one of their daughters (it's actually Carol's step-daughter) when she is raped and killed by a pedophile when leaving school. The police arrest a suspect named Seely (Kenneth Griffith), but have to release him when all the evidence in the case against him turns out to be circumstantial. A distraught Jim enlists the help of his teenage son Lee (Tom Marshall) and family friend Harry (Ray Barrett) to kidnap Seely and bring him to the Radford's cellar, which sits below a crowded pub that the Radford's own and run. After slugging Seely a few times (even Carol gets in a few licks), they tie him up and must decide what to do with him. As they try to keep their prisoner a secret from their other daughter Jill (Zuleika Robson), Lee's fiancee Rose (Sinead Cusack), who works as a waitress at the pub, and the pub's patrons, the Radfords and Harry begin fighting amongst each other (especially about who is actually going to kill him) and have many close calls with their new prisoner, including a couple of nosy beer deliverymen and an escape by Seely.Read more ›

I liked this film and the actors in it. It does have the feel of a glossy (if modestly budgeted) Hollywood production. The photography is excellent. Gregory Peck looks great, and Russian/French Tamara Toumanova is beatiful and has a distinctive and memorable face. I found her acting to be good (not great, but good) while some reviewers both past and present tend to dismiss her.

The story is simple and not very inspired, but if you're willing to sit through a sincere propaganda programmer about the "noble peasants" of Russia defending the motherland, then I think you'll enjoy this one, too.

This iis Gregory Peck's first movie role. The film was made back when Stalin was good ole uncle Joe. So pre Korea, pre Mac Carthy, pre the USSR getting their very own bomb. This is a good dramactic tale for a WWII movie. I'm not sure just how they did it but the German tanks in this film look just like, German tanks ... something that I don't think happened again in an American film until Kelly's Heros.

Here's a film that no decent Gregory Peck fan should be without. Perhaps this is why the video is OUT OF STOCK?? Or perhaps the subject matter - The Great Patriotic War - is unpopular in these days of glory in occupied Iraq? The things that strike me about this film, apart from Peck's rawboned, wide-eyed performance (yes, his VERY FIRST) are the deep B&W photography and the treatment of children in the movie.... it's as though much of the story is seen through their eyes. Indeed, "Enemy at the Gates" owes a plotline to "Days of Glory". In fact, I am gonna go ahead and put this on my list of grand all-time war movies 'about' children, right up there with Boorman's "Hope and Glory" (similarity intentional, Bro. John?); "Come and See"; "Empire of the Sun"; "The North Star"; "Back to Bataan"; and of course "Mrs. Miniver". Perhaps YOU can add others?

The year was 1944. Screenwriter and producer Casey Robinson wanted to chronicle the harrowing and valiant resistance of the Russian people against the Nazi military machine that invaded their homeland in 1941. To give the film a look of realism Robinson went outside Hollywood to find fresh young faces for the leads. He cast New York theatre actor Gregory Peck and ballerina Tamara Toumanova to star. Robinson got Jacques Tourneur to director based on his imaginative work (CAT PEOPLE) for producer Val Lewton. There are some good action sequences but the film is weighed down by Robinson's own script that is full of long stretches of dialogue and many romantic interludes which detracts from the intended theme of the film. The film's greatest assets are Gregory Peck's performance as Vladimir the leader of the Russian resistance and Academy Award Nominated Special Effects by Vernon L. Walker.

This is a propaganda movie made to illustrate our alliance with Soviet Russia during WWII. There is a mixture of Soviet actors and US actors. The plot is simple - show the poor Bolshevist resisting the Nazi onslaught with bravery. Peck showed his ability to deliver dialog and display body language that advances the plot. The sets were simple, yet effective. Compare the movie Defiance with this movie if you want to see how far the movie industry has come. They both have a similar plot!

I was entertained by this movie. I liked Defiance too!
