United Artists presents "CRIME OF PASSION" (9 January 1957) (84 min/B&W) (Fully Restored/Dolby Digitally Remastered) -- Kathy (Barbara Stanwyck) is a smart and tough 1950's advice columnist at a San Francisco newspaper, with her name plastered on billboards all over the city --- One day, Bill Doyle (Sterling Hayden), a Los Angeles detective, walks into her office and there is instant attraction --- After marrying Bill, Kathy gives up her career and becomes a homemaker --- However, she is not your typical 1950's homemaker --- After hosting several cocktail parties in their San Fernando Valley home, she realizes that Bill is content with his position, and shows no ambition in furthering himself --- Kathy will not sit idly by while everyone around her is "moving up in the world" --- She personally takes upon herself the task of pushing Bill's career along, even if it comes down to murder.
Sterling Hayden: ever the maverick, ever the individual - he preferred to sail his yacht around the world rather than act in movies. Yet despite his lack of interest in film, he was lauded and chased by the very finest directors: John Huston, Robert Altman, Francis Ford Coppola & Stanley Kubrick. In each of his roles, Hayden's individuality showed forth whatever the genre of film: noir, adventure, western & swashbuckler.
