The Strange Affair of Uncle Harry

Genre: Drama, Mystery and Thriller; Starring: Geraldine Fitzgerald, George Sanders, Sara Allgood; Director: Robert Siodmak; Runtime (in minutes): 80; MPAA Rating: Unrated; Distributor: Republic Home Video

The video release of this film is happy news for fans of George Sanders’ particular brand of cinematic spleen. In Uncle Harry, Sanders plays a nebbishy fabric designer whose engagement is thwarted by an insanely possessive sister (Geraldine Fitzgerald). Due to the incestuous subtext, the film was cut down over the years, and the version cobbled together for this ”restored” cassette unfortunately switches to a blurred, jittery print whenever Fitzgerald’s glances turn covetous.
