I woke up at 5:15 on a Monday morning during summer break to watch this Barbara Stanwyck movie. “Cry Wolf” (1947) was my 51st Barbara Stanwyck movie and it was worth every second of sleep that I didn’t get because of it – I loved it. It was as suspenseful as anything, and the story line was absolutely brilliant – it kept me guessing right up to the very end. IMDb has “Cry Wolf” listed as a drama, mystery, thriller. It was very film noir-ish too if you ask me, you can really feel the heavy, accusing, suspicious atmosphere in the house during the film. And Barbara Stanwyck is such a wonderful actress! <3 Love, love, love her. She could act in anything and I thought she was very convincing in this.

“Cry Wolf” was also my first Errol Flynn movie – apparently (from what I’ve read) the character in this movie wasn’t the type that Errol Flynn normally played, which means that I’ll have to go and find some more Errol Flynn movies. ;) He was good in this (very handsome, if you ask me), but since I haven’t seen any of his other movies I can’t really say whether or not I like him as an actor. The director of this movie, Peter Godfrey, also directed one of my favorite Stanwyck comedies (Christmas in Connecticut, 1945) and another Barbara Stanwyck movie that I liked called “The Two Mrs. Carrolls” (1947).

    This was your 51st BS movie but first Errol Flynn? Yes, you need to discover some earlier Flynn films. I’ begin with the obvious: Adventures of Robin Hood.
