I watched this movie for the first time last night with my grandma. It scared the crap out of me. I knew before I watched who the killer would be, from reading things on here. But it still suprised me never the less. I think Doris acting was simply superb in this movie, I could feel every emotion she was going through myself. I cried when she cried, and I was scared when she was scared. And the staircase scene? Magnificant!!! I just have a question. I don't understand where this Roy fellow fits in with all of this..

Peggy's husband. Maybe Roy wasn't his name.. In any case, I want to know what his deal was.

Isn't Doris the most gorgeous model ever?
Like Irene Dunne done.

Megan, yes Roy was his name. He was stalking them verifying that Peggy and Tony where really having an affair. Then I think he was going to tell Kit about it when he showed up at her door that one morning. And he probably planned to kill Peggy and Tony (at least confront them, but he did bring a gun.)

I agree about Doris' acting in the film. Superb! Much more nuanced and controlled than in Julie.

Midnight Lace is a really good psycological thriller. I can't think of many people with the character's insecurities (Kit) who would not feel threatened and unravel emotionally.

How wonderful it would be to see Midnight Lace on the big silver screen again, along with Doris' other great films. The magic of watching a good movie in a dark movie theater cannot be created at home.

Doris deserves our praise and appreciation for creating such enjoyable films for her audience.

Doris' sincere vulnerability and goodness is always near the surface in most of the roles she has played and this always elicts great empathy from countless admirers. This is really true in Midnight lace.What a great time at the movies! All these years later the feeling of fear for her still rings true.

I would like to see a 2010 50th anniversary edition of Midnight Lace be released with a commentary and other special features. This would be a wonderful treat for Doris' loyal fans.

Everytime I watch this movie, I can't help but feeling sad knowing that she went through something like that.
Doris is really THE strongest woman, actress and person ever! I admire her so much!
The scene that makes me feel for her the most is in the elevator --- I can connect with that scene very much so.

Regarding the Quigley Poll of Top Box Office Draws...it might also be interesting to note:
Doris was #1 for 4 years/ She was in the Top 10 for 10 years,
BUT SHE WAS SOMEWHERE ON THE LIST EVERY YEAR FROM 1948 THROUGH 1968, OR EVERY YEAR IN WHICH SHE MADE A MOVIE

NO ONE BEATS THAT RECORD!!!

There are so many tension building scenes in Midnight Lace starting with Doris walking through the London fog right through to the end where she is walking along the high constuction beams near the end. Everyone in the audience is having an aniety attack because they love Doris' character and fear for her.

Just brilliant!

I don't recognise the scene though, do you?

It looks more like "Lover, Come Back." I think it was mislabeled somehow.
Like Irene Dunne done.

The photo has a dark feel about it though, doesn't it? Even Doris looks worried. :(

Thanks for sharing these photos--I had never seen most of them, so it was definitely a treat!! :)

Doris does look very worried in that last photo! If indeed it is from "Midnight Lace", maybe the stress and anxiety that Doris felt while making that movie, are showing up in her face in the photo. Just a thought....

I know this is slightly off the subject, but I've often wished that the "powers-that-be" at Madame Tussaud's would immortalize our Doris in a wax figure. She is just so beautiful--and I can think of no one else who has made such contributions to our culture of music and cinema (not to mention her work for the animals)??!! Can you imagine how beautiful THAT wax figure would be???!!! :D

Anyhow, I'll stop rambling now!! LOL
Hope you all are having a lovely "Day"! :D

I was thinking how great it would be to have a wax figure of Doris last year when I was visiting London. I was surprised to learn that there is no wax figure of Doris in the London wax museum since Doris is so popular in London and the wax museum is so huge, but no Doris wax figure! :(

Unfortunately, we will probably never see a wax figure of our Doris :(
I think the person (subject) has to give permission for Madame Tussaud's to do the work, and I have a feeling that Doris would not agree to it. Too bad, really--because it would be perfectly stunning, and so well-deserved!!!! Maybe if they would offer to do a wax figure of Doris with one of her beloved four-leggers, she would do it (just a thought--LOL)!! :)
Hope you all are having a lovely "Day"!! :)
