Crew
Directed by Gerd Oswald


He had looks, charm, and killer instinct! Beneath his clean-cut looks... was a cold-blooded killer. Robert Wagner (Hart to Hart, The Pink Panther) gambled with his clean-cut image to play the ruthless, conniving killer in this unrelenting thriller co-starring Jeffrey Hunter (The Searchers), Virginia Leith (Fear and Desire), Joanne Woodward (Three Faces of Eve), Robert Quarry (Madhouse), George Macready (Gilda) and Mary Astor (The Hurricane). Based on the novel by suspense master Ira Levin (Rosemary's Baby, The Stepford Wives), A Kiss Before Dying is riveting, sure-fire entertainment you can't miss. Wagner is Bud Corliss, a darkly handsome college boy so obsessed with wealth that he'd do anything to get it. When his rich girlfriend gets pregnant and is threatened with disinheritance, Bud stages her suicide, sending her plummeting from the roof of a high-rise. It's the perfect crime... until the dead girl's sister begins to unravel Bud's deadly scheme. Beautifully shot in cinemascope by the great Lucien Ballard (The Wild Bunch, The Killing) with top-notch direction by veteran Gerd Oswald (Crime of Passion).
