Joe Sarno’s films are often lumped into the category of exploitation that’s just this side of pornography, but I often wonder if those who categorize them this way have actually seen any of them. For, despite the salacious advertising, if they had, they would know Sarno’s films were more concerned with the reason why folks sin in the suburbs than the actual act of adultery itself and should be celebrated as such.

“Lars Thorwald is no more a murderer than I am.”

“You mean that you can explain everything strange that
has been going on over there, and is still going on?”

“No, and neither can you. That’s a secret private world
your looking into out there. People do a lot of things in
private they couldn’t possibly explain in public…”

“…Like killing their wives?”








This post is part of the For the Love of Film Blogathon, a new age telethon to raise funds for The National Film Preservation Foundation to help bring The White Shadow (a/k/a White Shadows), an early silent film that a certain master of suspense did just about everything for except direct — assistant director, screenwriter, film editor, production designer, art director, and set decorator, to the streaming masses and help defray the costs of adding a new musical soundtrack.
