Video Review

The Strange Affair of Uncle Harry

MPAA Rating: Unrated
EW's GRADE
B

Details Movie Rated: Unrated; Genres: Drama, Mystery and Thriller; With: Geraldine Fitzgerald and George Sanders; 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.
