A Trailer a day keeps the Boogeyman away!


Rage in Heaven movie poster

Psychological thriller directed by W.S. Van Dyke (The Thin Man series) with a screenplay by Christopher Isherwood and Robert Thoeren, based on the novel by James Hilton (Goodbye Mr Chips, Random Harvest)

Starring Robert Montgomery (who was marvelous as Danny the psychopath in Night Must Fall 1937) Here he plays Phillip Monrell a mentally disturbed man who is obsessed and paranoid about his friend Ward Andrews (George Sanders) being after his beautiful wife, the always lovely Ingrid Bergman as Stella. Phillip’s jealous obsession drives him into a murderous detachment from reality. Lucille Watson plays Philips mother, and Oskar Homolka  plays Dr. Rameau.

  1. This looks so good! Incredibly, I’ve never heard of this movie. (I’m slipping!) What a fantastic cast!

    Thanks for posting this trailer. It is one of the best – the music, the copywriting, the fonts!

    1. Every time I stumble onto one of these wonderful thriller or noir gems I can’t believe that it’s so obscure. I read about this film in The Dark Mirror-Psychiatry and Film Noir! Amazon has it, I might just treat myself as it looks like a must see!- I’m glad the trailer peaked your interested too- You’re not slipping, there’s just so many great undiscovered or overlooked films, and not enough time to see them all!- Really loved your piece on WINGS for the Oscars Blogathons
