    I really liked I Wake Up Screaming, the first movie based on the novel of the same name. Laird Cregar was a genius in his role as the detective. Victor Mature was excellent as well. If you have seen both films, do you think Vicki lives up to the original movie?



    Nobody gets to be a cowboy forever.

    That surly Det even back in the 50’s would never scream at people the way he did in the station. The director should have had Boone tone down his acting a bit.

    I fell asleep halfway through the movie, which is no reflection on it. I assume Richard Boone’s rogue cop killed Vicki?

    In the cast list, he is billed by his temporary screen-name Casey Adams. Further down the credits he appears again as writer of the title song, this time under his real name: Max Showalter.

    The song was used instrumentally only. The two songs sung by Jean Peters were existing songs written for previous 20th Century Fox movies.

    There are those lurking who think this version is better than original perhaps because it is a grittier time and less colored by late 30’s insouciance. Get me?

    Nothing exists more beautifully than nothing.
